Scoil Eoin Pupils Take Part In Shoebox Appeal

Scoil Eoin Students Council with Shoeboxes.

SCOIL Eoin Balloonagh took part in the Team Hope Shoebox Appeal once again this year.

Last year 264,636 boxes were collected and sent across the world to poor communities including Belarus, Eastern Europe and six countries across Africa.

Team Hope delivers the boxes straight into the hands of little boys and girls who are living in bleak conditions in orphanages, street shelters and homes.

The shoeboxes are a ‘box of love’ as such and are often the first present these children have ever received. Every single box makes a huge difference.

In Scoil Eoin the project was undertaken by the Student Council with the help of their coordinator Mrs. Carol Anne O’Donoghue.

They were overwhelmed with the response and generosity of all the parents and pupils of Scoil Eoin. In total boxes over 385 were collected.

Team Hope representatives Michelle Reynolds and Gordon Sheehy collected the boxes on Friday morning. All boxes will shortly be en route to these children in need. Well done to all involved.
