Wexford Chamber and VDP in Christmas toy appeal
Published 08/12/2015 | 00:00
WEXFORD Chamber is partnering with St Vincent de Paul for the fourth year in a row for the annual Christmas Toy Appeal.
Last year, the Toy Appeal saw some 130 toys donated and distributed to families in need and this year the mission is to do the same again this year.
When you're planning your Christmas shopping, please consider adding a small gift for the St. Vincent de Paul Appeal to your list - it will go to one of the children they work with and really help to make a child's Christmas special.
For many of the children and families St. Vincent de Paul works with, Christmas is a particularly difficult time. With your support, we hope to make a difference to their Christmas with the excitement and joy of receiving a gift.
1. To take part in our toy appeal, we are asking you to donate a gift (see the useful gift guidelines below that will help you choose a present). Wexford Chamber will 'allocate' a particular child to you, advising you of the child's age, sex and first name;
2. You buy the gift, wrap in Christmas paper and label the present with the child's first name and age clearly marked;
3. You can then drop your gift into the Wexford Chamber offices, Wexford County Council Depot, Whitemill Industrial Estate by December 14. From here it will be collected by St. Vincent de Paul and distributed on Christmas Eve. Call 053 9122226 for more information.
