Dear Students and Staff at St. Patrick’s National School Greystones,
A HUGE THANKS to all of you for your amazing work collecting, preparing and distributing a Christmas meal and gift backpacks to our homeless friends at The Light House. A delicious meal and all the backpacks brought many smiles to over 300 guests on that day.
It was so encouraging to watch the video of the students loading the backpacks on that morning as the vans headed for Dublin. After their arrival, we spent several hours completely the final touches for opening. During most of the two hours that we were open, we had a queue for both the meal and the Christmas gifts.
On behalf of all of us at The Light House, we are so thankful for your hearts and passion to help the homeless in Dublin. You truly brought Christmas cheer to many that are living under very difficult circumstances. The smiling faces, words of thanks and even tears all belong to you through your desire to help those in need and to “love your neighbour”!
Well done, St. Patrick’s NS Greystones, Christmas 2020
Happy Christmas & Blessed New Year to you all!
All your friends at The Light House!
