A Huge “Thank You” from St. Vincent de Paul

To the Parents, Pupils and Teacher,thankyou

On behalf of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, we wish to acknowledge with sincere thanks the contribution of Oliver Plunkett School to this year’s Christmas Appeal.

Volunteers from the Dublin Society of St. Vincent de Paul  visit thousands of homes every week and know where the real needs are. We were delighted with the response to our Appeal this year, especially considering the increase in the number of calls for help to the Society. Your donation went a long way towards making Christmas that little bit brighter and happier for some of the families we visited.

This Thank You poster is just our way of letting everyone involved know that we very much appreciate your efforts and we hope for and look forward to your continued support.

A Christmas Gift for those Less Fortunate

DSC_3535We can only imagine what the inside of Santa’s workshop and store room looks like on Christmas Eve but anyone visiting the happy huts in the week before Christmas would have got an inkling of what it must be like.  There, piled high from floor to ceiling was every sort of Christmas gift imaginable which would serve to brighten anyone’s Christmas.  The gifts were a mix of everything that you might put on your wish list of food and toys and presents.
DSC_3542But this was no ordinary collection of gifts but an assortment lovingly donated by pupils and their parents whose generosity knows no bounds and who wished to bring a little joy to some less fortunate than themselves.

You’ve heard of the “big dig” and the planning that went into executing it or the organisation and military precision that was needed for Hannibal crossing the Alps, but all that paled into insignificance when compared to the strategy of big wrap and deliver when over 20 drivers were mustered to ensure everything was delivered to where it was needed most and in proper time for Christmas.  Organised by the pupils from 6th. class, under the watchful eye of Ms Markey, it was somewhat of a “Miracle on Grove Road”.

St VdeP Society, Ms Markey and all at StOPS thank all who helped in any way to make this amazing miracle happen.
