Roger Casements & Geraldine's Camogie Club Portglenone have joined with many of the Official Antrim GAA clubs to support the Saffron Aid Christmas Shoebox Appeal for Saint Vincent De Paul.
We would you all to help us make a great contribution to this worthy cause as it's our local people that will be benefitting from the Shoe box donations.
The procedure is as follows:
1. GET A SHOEBOX
2. NEXT TIME YOU ARE SHOPPING PICK UP A FEW BITS AND PIECES (see list of suitable items below)
3. PUT THEM IN THE SHOEBOX
4. WRAP THE SHOEBOX
5. MAKE SURE YOU MAKE IT CLEAR ON THE FRONT IF THE ITEMS ARE SUITABLE FOR A MAN OR A WOMAN AND AGE
Suitable items for the shoeboxes: Shower Gel, Shampoo, Toothpaste, Toothbrushes, Mouthwash, Lip Balm, Sanitary Products, Flannels, Combs, Hairbrushes, Hand Cream, Deodorant Spray/Roll On, Chocolate, Hot Chocolate Sachets, Notepad and Pen/Pencils, Torches, Batteries, Mobile Phone Chargers, Travel First Aid Kits, Socks, Hats, Gloves, Scarves, Small Towels, Earplugs, and Eyemasks.
This list is not exhaustive. If there is anything else you think of that would make a vulnerable person’s life easier at Christmas please include those items.
Saffron Aid is also happy to accept donations of sleeping bags, which will be passed on to charities that work with the homeless.
Shoeboxes,Sleeping Bags,or donations can be left in The CLUB during Opening hours before Friday 24th November.
We understand that everyone has additional commitments and pressures at this time of year so any help for this cause is greatly appreciated.
