Members of the Mountmellick Central Hub are already very busy preparing to assist up to 1,000 local families over the festive period.
Now in it’s second year the Mountmellick Central Hub Christmas Appeal is well underway. The organisers already have a list of 570 families who will be receiving food hampers and their support this Christmas.
In order to assist as many families and individuals as possible they have put out an appeal to the community to nominate a friend, neighbour or relative that they feel might need support.
The committee said: “We are particularly interested in anyone who may need our help in our rural suburbs. We cover up to 6km outside Mountmellick. If you need our support in these areas please reach out in complete confidence. We are here to help and we aim to do all in our power to support those who need us most this holiday season.”
You can private message the Mountmellick Central Hub through it Facebook page with names in complete confidence, phone them on 085 2135119 or 0852093253 or email them at [email protected]
