TIS the season of goodwill and the employees at one company in Tralee certainly displayed that by helping out local children in town.

Organised by the newly-formed charity committee at JRI America, the company teamed up with St Vincent de Paul and donated over €2,000 in toys and vouchers so children in need will get a present this Christmas.

There was a Christmas tree in the office — which is based in Kerry Technology Park — with tags containing a child’s first name and age, so workers took a tag and bought a toy based on that information, purchased a voucher or donated cash.

It’s the third year they’ve run the campaign for Christmas at the office, where around 115 people work.

Paddy Kevane and Junior Locke of St Vincent de Paul were there on Friday to collect the donations and expressed their thanks to JRI America staff for their kind efforts.
