“Our team in Vincent’s Donation Centre at Monavalley Industrial Estate have worked throughout the clock preparing clothing packs with the specific items requested and needed. Our visitation conferences have been working all week assisting our Ukrainian friends with any of the other needs apart from clothing,” they said.

“We are working with the Department of Social Protection and other organizations for an effective coordinated response and we will be part of the Interagency group established to coordinate response for Ukrainian refugees arriving in Kerry.”

“Our Ukrainian friends will shortly be visiting our Vincent stores to select the clothing that they need and want rather than going through a donation bag which may not contain what they actually need. If you wish to donate clothing please drop it into our warehouse or shops where we have the infrastructure to process it and have it ready for our those who need it.

If people would like to make a donation to our Ukrainian friends please consider donating gift vouchers instead. It can be for a local business or clothing store and you can drop them into any of our Vincent’s shops or donation centre in Monavalley Industrial Estate Tralee. We will bring them to our Ukrainians friends.”

Gift vouchers such as Penney’s, One4All, or other clothing store vouchers. Our shops may not have all the required items needed and gift vouchers could cover what we don’t have. Gift vouchers for a local restaurant is another idea to be considered. Please Drop any donations of vouchers into a Vincent’s shop in an envelope marked assistance for Ukrainians in Kerry,” concluded the spokesperson.
