Food Appeal

Be a Christmas Elf with SVP

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul provides help to thousands of families at Christmas which includes both essential food items as well as Christmas treats.  This food is distributed by our network of local volunteers.
We would be so grateful if your company, school or group would like to be Christmas Elves and take part in the Food Appeal. 

We will provide you with:

  • Posters to put up around your organisation
  • A list of suggested food items
  • Delivery information and a delivery docket to go with your food donations
  • A certificate of appreciation to display on a noticeboard

You will:

  • Collect all donations by the cut-off date for your region to allow ample turnaround time for our volunteers visiting families in need
  • Ensure all food collected is non-perishable, with an expiry date well into 2020
  • Ensure all food is unwrapped and in shopping bags as opposed to hampers, for the ease of our volunteers
For further information and support please contact the East Regional Office (Dublin, Kildare and Wicklow) on or ring 01 819 8414/8416.
Cut-off date for dropping off food is Friday 6th December.
Thank you so much for your support – Christmas wouldn’t be the same without you!
