STUDENTS at Gaelcholáiste Chiarraí showed their generosity just before Christmas with a shoebox collection for a homeless shelter.

Elma O’Sullivan’s Transitiion Year class co-ordinated with the whole school to put together shoeboxes and fundraise for Arlington Lodge.

“We felt it was a very worthy cause especially at Christmas time and we’ve endeavoured to help them with this appeal over the past number of years,” said Elma.

“Homelessness is such a problem in this country and the students made a huge drive with this initiative and we brought food to the shelter earlier this week,” she continued.

Students and staff created around 100 shoeboxes which contained a present and essential toiletries, clothing and more. Philip Lyons of Novas called to the school to collect the shoeboxes on Friday morning.
