Marshes Shopping Centre deems Toys on the Table Appeal a success
In November and December 2017, Marshes Shopping Centre Dundalk opened up the centre as a drop off point for the Toys on the Table Appeal in conjunction with Blue Sky Properties and Local Social Services.
The charity initiative supports local families who may struggling to get through the Christmas period by gifting children with toys which their parents or guardians may not have been in a position to provide.
Marshes Shopping Centre encouraged shoppers to purchase an additional gift during their Christmas Shopping at Marshes and leave it at the drop off point within the centre. All donated gifts were given directly to local children in need through liaison with Gary Valentine of Blue Sky Properties and Local Social Services.
Sean Farrell, Marshes Shopping Centre Manager commented “Marshes Shopping Centre working in partnership with Gary Valentine of Blue Sky Properties and Local Social Services would like to sincerely thank all of Marshes S.C. customers for their overwhelming generosity to this year’s appeal”
The gifts brought happiness and excitement to many local children in need over the Christmas period. With such a phenomenal response the charity received excess numbers of gifts than there was demand for this year meaning local children in need will continue to benefit by receiving the kindly donated gifts throughout the remainder of the year.
