Shoebox Appeal

The Transition Year class, Geldof will be organising this year’s Shoe Box Appeal for Donabate Community College.

We would like to ask students to make up a shoebox filled with goodies for this worthy cause, Team Hope.

Team Hope are an Irish organisation that help families in developing countries make their children’s Christmas more magical.

The shoe boxes are due into the school on the 7th of November. The following items can be put into your shoebox. 
Thank you

TO WRITE – Items for school – like a pen, pencil, copybook, paper, colouring book, felt pens, sharpener, eraser, solar calculator.
TO WASH – Some hygiene items – toothbrush and toothpaste, soap (wrapped please), face cloth, hairbrush, comb.
TO WEAR – Small clothing items – a hat, scarf, gloves, socks or underwear
