A local group are this week appealing for the public’s generosity as they are planning a food appeal to help 80 local families this Christmas.
Killarney Lions Club members will be out collecting funds on the streets of Killarney this Friday, December 7. From the money collected they will then purchase food to make up food hampers.
Then, on Saturday December 15, the Christmas hampers will be delivered to the families in Killarney.
“Over the past 40 years people of Killarney have donated money to the Killarney Lions Club Food Appeal and 1000s of Christmas Hampers have been delivered to needy Killarney families,” Liam Kealy, from Killarney Lions Club, said.
“The funds collected go to local charity needs. This time of the year is not an easy time for some in our community, we ask that you give as generously as you can. We will make sure on your behalf that those in need in and around Killarney will have a better Christmas thanks to your kindness and support.”
He added that the Lions Club wish you and your family a very happy and peaceful Christmas.
