Every year, with the help of Saint Vincent de Paul, Drogheda Lions Club distributes hundreds of food hampers to families in Drogheda and East Meath who need a little extra support to make their Christmas a happy one.
This is no ordinary year though, and because of covid-19 restrictions, the Lions cannot hold their normal food collection at local supermarkets.
Instead, they intend to distribute food vouchers to all those that need help and they are appealing for your continued support by contributing to their Fundraiser.
All funds raised go entirely to the purchase of vouchers which will be distributed by the Drogheda and East Meath branches of the Society of St Vincent de Paul.
