Shop celebrates first birthday by teaming up with Inner City Helping Homeless
This is a wonderful idea.
Outdoor store Regatta is celebrating their first birthday in the Ilac shopping centre by giving back to the community.
The store will be teaming up with charity Inner City Helping Homeless to help those in need.
To mark their first birthday Regatta Great Outdoors are giving away a free fleece to anyone who donates an old fleece.
From Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd of September, customers who bring an old fleece to the Regatta Great Outdoors Ilac Store will receive a new fleece and their old fleece will be donated to Inner City Helping Homeless to be used as part of their volunteer supplies for homeless around Dublin City and surrounding areas.
Coming into the cold winter months, warm clothing for those sleeping rough is more needed than ever.
Brian McLoughlin of Inner City Helping Homeless says;
“It is only through the generosity of the public and the support from companies such as Regatta Great Outdoors that we are able to keep supporting homeless adults and children around Dublin City and surrounding areas 7 days a week. We are so grateful to everyone that supports this fantastic initiative.”
Inner City Helping Homeless have 180 volunteers currently helping the charity but they rely heavily on donations and fundraising to deliver their services across Dublin.
If you have fleeces in good condition that you could donate to the cause visit Regatta Great Outdoors Ilac Store next week from Friday, September 21 and Sunday, September 23.
