Community Connect support group to host ‘Drive & Drop’ donation event in Coosan

Community Connect, an organisation that offers practical support to pregnant women and babies across Ireland, is responding to those needs by hosting a ‘Drive & Drop’ donation event at Our Lady Queen of Peace church car park in Coosan, Athlone, from 1-3pm on Saturday, March 26.

Community Connect partners with homeless agencies, domestic violence services, direct provision centres and health professionals around Ireland to provide support to pregnant women and new mothers in need with gifts of essential items like buggies, moses baskets, baby clothes and mother and baby boxes filled with items such as nappies, maternity items and baby blanket. The organisation relies on the generosity of volunteers and donors around Ireland to continue its work.

On March 26, Community Connect is asking people to support their ‘Drive & Drop’ donation day in Coosan.

Donors just need to follow two simple steps:

Browse the list of items requested and decide what they want to donate

Drop the items contact-free to Coosan church grounds on Saturday, March 26, between 1pm and 3pm.

All the items donated will be delivered to pregnant women and new mothers in need in the coming weeks and months.

“We are of course ever mindful at the moment of the ongoing situation in Ukraine, and we want to be in a strong position to also assist Ukrainian refugees coming to Ireland with babies and small children, who are asking for our assistance.

“We are so grateful to our volunteers and supporters for what we have achieved so far and we hope to continue with this essential work, to help as many pregnant mothers and families with young babies as possible,” Ms Noonan concluded.
