Christmas Shoebox Collection for Local Charity, Penny Dinners
The season of giving is upon us and the team at Specsavers Mahon Point, together with the team in Opera Lane, are delighted to have collected over 30 boxes for local charity, Penny Dinners.
The Store’s Contribution
The Christmas shoeboxes were filled with essential items such as pyjamas, underwear, socks and wipes, and will be sent to children in need throughout Cork, many of whom will receive no other gift this Christmas.
Store director, John Morrin, commented: ‘We are proud to have supported this local shoebox appeal for Penny Dinners this year. It is great to be able to give something back to the local community ahead of Christmas. A shoebox full of essentials will make a child in need feel valued this Christmas.’
Penny Dinners is a Cork-based charity that aims to help those who struggle and those in need. They serve up to 2,000 freshly made meals per week and provide donations of warm clothes and bedding such as sleeping bags and duvets.
