Bring the Spirit of Christmas to your School, Workplace, or Community this year!

Galway Simon Community urgently need your support to ensure that we can continue to protect the most vulnerable individuals and families in our community – at a time of year that can be particularly difficult for them.

The lasting impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on top of the ongoing housing crisis means many more people are facing the reality of homelessness this Christmas. Our Homelessness Prevention Services have supported 485 unique households, 181 families and 433 children so far this year, and many more still need our help.

Three fun & festive ways to come together and make a real difference!

We are looking forward to a more normal Christmas this year and we hope you are too; here are some creative ways you can support those facing homelessness this Christmas:

  1. Host a Christmas Jumper Day in your workplace, school or community
    Wrap up in your warm festive woollies and pledge to donate €5 (or more).
  2. Buy a Christmas Voucher
    Help provide practical and immediate support by gifting a Christmas Voucher for groceries, toys or fuel to families and individuals in need.
  3. Join us for the Sprint for Simon – 12 days of Christmas Challenge
    Breeze into the New Year with our Sprint for Simon 12 Days of Christmas Challenge! Join us for 12 days from December 25th to January 5th and sprint, walk or run 1 km per day.

The are so many ways to get involved! Hold a bake sale, a Christmas raffle or design your own Christmas decorations and sell them to your friends and family. Whatever it is you would like to do, get in touch! We’d love to hear from you.
