Appeal To Raise €5000 For Sleeping Bags For Homeless

Sleeping Bags For Homeless

As the temperatures drop, there is an increasing need for sleeping bags for the homeless.

Homeless Mobile Run works predominantly in the Grafton Street area to provide soup runs and sleeping bags to those in need.

The voluntary non-government funded organization provide hot dishes, snacks, tea, coffee, toiletries, clothes and sleeping bags.

According to a recent update on their GoFundMe page, they have recently run out of sleeping bags.

The charity is looking for donations to get as many sleeping bags as possible as they are desperately needed – they’re aiming to reach €5000.

€12 can provide one sleeping bag, and so far they have raised almost €1,500.

Organiser Jamie Carroll says: “A sleeping bag can save a life this winter and all year round. It doesn’t have to be money donations it can be any items you think our service users will need! 100% of the donations go to the Homeless Mobile Run Sleeping Bag Appeal! All donations are welcome and are greatly appreciated.”
