Fill a LUAS event

ICHH are delighted to announce the 4th annual #fillaluas event with our charity partners Transdev/Luas on the Luas platform at Connolly Station.

Fill A Luas asks the public to donate a shoebox of gifts to the homeless at Connolly Luas Stop on Thurs 6th December 7am – 7pm.

Every year the event gets bigger and bigger. This year Fill A Luas will be a week’s long event to give people more time to donate a shoebox over the holidays with the aim of collecting more than the record 20,000 shoeboxes!

Fill A Luas Week will run from Mon 3rd to Fri 7th December. The public can drop shoeboxes to the Luas depots in Red Cow and Broombridge 9am – 5pm.

All are welcome to the event at Connolly Luas Stop on Thursday 6th December. It’s always a great day and every year we are overwhelmed by the generosity of the public, with donations from all over Ireland.

On the day we will be providing the following services for our homeless friends:

  • Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
  • Haircuts
  • Tea/Coffee, Donuts, Popcorn, Candy Floss, Slush Puppies
  • Santa’s Grotto
  • Giggles The Clown onsite all day
