With November now upon us and Christmas creeping ever closer, Donegal Community Childcare has launched its ‘Presents for Percy’ appeal for the festive season.
It has been confirmed that 2015 will be the final year of the appeal and to give Percy a final send off they want to make this the most successful ever.
Since its launch in 2011 the appeal has contributed over €62,000 in donations as well as an immeasurable quantity of toys.
It has helped over 1,000 families and met the requests of 2,600 children in Donegal, with many of them located in Inishowen.
The team at DCCC are now appealing for your support this year, asking businesses, schools, early childhood services and any individual who can spare a small donation to get behind this appeal and help make a real difference to children and families living in poverty in the local area.
No contribution is too big or too small. In order to make it easier to contribute to the appeal this year and alongside the traditional methods, a text donate service has been activated. Text PERCY to 50300 to donate €4. Some operators apply VAT which means that a minimum of €3.25 will go to the appeal. Cheque/PO can be made payable to the Presents for Percy Appeal and sent to Donegal County Childcare, 10-11 St Columba’s Terrace, High Road, Letterkenny.
