The true meaning of Christmas has been made abundantly clear in Abbeyfeale. For the past number of weeks, the fifth year Home Economics students of Coláiste Íde agus Iosef together with their teacher Mrs Meade have participated in a major food appeal to help the St. Vincent de Paul society. The students collected the food items for the hampers throughout November and December from the school community of Coláiste Íde agus Iosef.
The donated foods contributed to the production of 80 fabulous food hampers which have been donated to the local charity. The hampers consisted of essential food items as well as some luxury treats which will no doubt be a welcomed gift for many deserving families this festive season.
The students would especially like to take this opportunity to express their extreme gratitude to local shops for their generous support, in particular Twohig’s Supervalu, Moss Harnett, O’Donoghues and Tesco Abbeyfeale along with McLernons and Roberts Pharmacy in Limerick who supported the appeal. The beautiful hampers will be distributed by St. Vincent de Paul to families who are in need this Christmas time
