Fill an Xmas truck event

ICHH are delighted to announce the “Fill an Xmas Truck” event. We have partnered up with DCC, Virginia Logistics, The Good Food Truck Company, Coke Lane Pizza and others for the event.

Fill an Xmas truck asks the public to donate a shoebox of gifts to the homeless at Mountjoy Square Park on Thursday the 12th of December from 7am-7pm.

The annual shoebox appeal will run from now until Friday 13th 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
  • Dinner
  • Pizza/Snacks
  • Tea/Coffee
  • Haircuts
  • Santa’s Grotto
  • Music
