Join the Bag Pack for Simon

Tesco have given the Simon Communities the chance to fundraise in 90 allocated stores across the county by hosting a Bag Pack in April 2014. Dublin Simon Community have an opportunity to raise vital funds for our local services by pledging to fill 27 stores in Dublin, Kildare and Wicklow with enthusastic Bag Packers. The Bag pack is booked for Friday 4th April, and we are looking for groups to take a store for a full day or half day. For more information on how to sign up click here.

Resources for teachers/students

Dublin Simon Community was founded in 1969 when a group of Trinity and UCD students, inspired by Simon founder Anton Wallich-Clifford, began a nightly soup run on the streets of Dublin. For over 40 years Dublin Simon has maintained its strong links with colleges and schools around the city, bringing the issues surrounding homelessness directly into the classroom.

In order to generate awareness about homelessness and the work that we do here at Dublin Simon Community we offer schools and colleges speakers from Dublin Simon who can show you an informative dvd, provide the class with a reading resource and answer any questions you may have. If you would like someone to visit your school or college please call (01) 6715551 or email fundraising@dubsimon.ie
