This year for the fourth time @officialAntrimGAA is proud to announce the launch of #SAFFRONAID4. They have teamed up with St Vincent de Paul (SVP) again to help spread seasonal cheer to some of the most vulnerable in our society.
We as a club are justifiably proud, in the GAA, of our sense of community and the good work done throughout the county and the country, so on that note we would like our members and friends to help those who are less fortunate this Christmas… with the #SAFFRONAID4 SHOEBOX APPEAL.
THIS IS REALLY EASY… GET A SHOEBOX NEXT TIME YOU’RE OUT SHOPPING PICK UP A FEW BITS AND PIECES (see list of suitable items below) PUT THEM IN THE SHOEBOX WRAP THE SHOEBOX MAKE SURE YOU MAKE IT CLEAR ON THE FRONT IF THE ITEMS ARE SUITABLE FOR A MAN / WOMAN OR BOY OR GIRL.
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.
Toys can also be purchased for children - There is a massive need for presents for teenage boys.
This list is not exhaustive, if there is anything else you can think of that would make a vulnerable person’s life just a wee bit easier at Christmas, please add to it.
You can drop your shoeboxes/toys at the office in the club or alternatively there will be someone available for collection at the Chapel back porch after each Mass on the 23rd/24th November
