Countywide Christmas Appeal a Huge Success

The Donegal Food Response Network has been inundated with generous donations to this year’s Christmas Appeal which took place on Saturday the 27th of November. The Network is made up of a number of community and voluntary organisations throughout Donegal who opened their doors to welcome donations of food, vouchers, cash or gifts which will be distributed to those in need in their local community.

The appeal was one of the biggest of its kind in Donegal which was made possible by having centres open for donations located throughout the county. Locations included Donegal Town, Finn Valley, Letterkenny, Raphoe, Dungloe, Cloughaneely, Maghery, Árainn Mhóir, Carndonagh and Buncrana.  Some of these centres not only collected donations but ran Christmas Stalls and Coffee Mornings to raise further funds.

Margaret Larkin, DLDC Community Development Manager, said:

‘DLDC was delighted to be involved with this great initiative and is overwhelmed by the generosity, goodwill and charitable spirit shown by the people of Donegal, not to mention the huge efforts made by each of the Network Members involved in making this appeal a huge success in extremely difficult times. My sincerest thanks to everyone for their support.’

All donations are gratefully appreciated, and every donation collected will go towards making sure no family in your community goes hungry this Christmas.
