Calls for help to SVP are at highest level in its history
Figure could reach almost 200,000 by end of December
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVP) said that calls for help this year will be at their highest level in its history and could reach almost 200,000 by the end of December.
National President Rose McGowan said the fact that the Society has received more calls for help nationally than at any other time in its history and still managed to provide help is testimony to the dedication of its volunteers and staff and the incredible support of the Irish public.
“We are once again appealing to the nation to help us assist the thousands of people who are struggling on inadequate incomes,” she said.
The SVP Annual Appeal theme ‘Impossible Choices’ has again been chosen to reflect what those struggling financially face every day.
