SVP Annual Indoor Collection 9/10 December 2017

SVP (Society of St Vincent de Paul) Annual indoor collection will replace the regular SHARE collection at all masses on the weekend of 9/10 December 2017.

Please see below a note from our local branch - Palmerstown SVP regarding this collection:-

"The second collection on the weekend of 9/10 December 2017 is on behalf of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul in Palmerstown. It is the main source of income for the Society in Palmerstown and is supported with great generosity each year. Together with the outdoor monthly collections, almost €20,000 is donated yearly.

All money collected is used in providing direct assistance to over 100 households in need within Palmerstown. This assistance is in the form of Food, Clothes, Home heating and school expenses. No cash assistance is provided. No money is spent on Administration.

SVP assists households who, in normal circumstances, are barely surviving from week to week on very low income but who are then affected by some unfortunate event such as a family bereavement or illness, loss of a job, extra school costs, and especially in recent times, rent increases or indeed being made homeless.

SVP’s approach to people seeking our help is to visit them in their homes, assess their needs, ensure they receive all their state entitlements, and then to provide assistance for a short period of time to get them over their temporary difficulty and back to managing on their own as soon as possible.

On behalf of these, our fellow parishioners, whose lives have been enhanced by your continuing support, a sincere Thank You from SVP Palmerstown, for your extreme generosity this and every year."
