Clondalkin Helping Homeless has been helping local Families and those in need since 2014, over time the needs have changed and Clondalkin Helping Homeless has changed to meet those needs, alongside continuing to give out Sleeping bags/tents and supplies to homeless as needed , Clondalkin Helping Homeless also does a weekly foodbank , Foodcloud and appeals as needed.

 

On top of our weekly Foodbank , we give out Foodcloud where Over 1033 collections of Foodcloud has been given out in food that would be the equivalent of 68,913 meals or 28,977 kg of food since the Foodcloud phone app started , this has been a C02 saving of 92,726Kg. The Foodcloud currently comes from Tescos in Clondalkin and Liffey Valley and the staff in both have been very helpful to us.

 

Cllr Timmons says ‘’ Clondalkin Helping Homeless continues to meet the changing needs as they arise, Our current appeal is for Toiletries and long lasting food and sleeping bags for our Ukrainian appeal, our weekly foodbank has grown and the demand is increasing , we now have over 120 on our list. Many people are faced with spiralling household bills and the basic choice for some is to pay bills or eat, Obviously both are important and we aim to assist by giving food to help people in this time of struggle. I am very thankful for our volunteers who give there time and effort to Clondalkin Helping Homeless’’

 

Cllr Timmons says ‘’ If you would like to help the FoodBank or the Ukranian Appeal we are accepting food donation of in date , unopened and long lasting food  and other supplies in Bawnogue community centre Monday – Friday. We do not take clothes or toys unless we have put out a specific appeal’’

 

Cllr Timmons says ‘’ The rising inflation and increased rents and electricity – heat bills are crippling many who where already struggling ,  Any donations will help us help families in need, If you or someone you know needs help please contact us, we are specifically for the Clondalkin area only’’
