There was an overwhelming response to the school's request for essentials in support of Ukrainian families in our community. A huge debt of gratitude is owed to everyone who responded to the call and contributed items and time to the cause. Our guests have already had their first dive into the considerable collection, and further pickup days will be arranged over the next couple of weeks.
While the collection of items is well beyond expectation, further items may be requested on the basis of specific need. Updates will be posted on the school website. Once again, a big thank you to all involved so far. The generosity of Inishowen was clear to see on Thursday morning.
So far, items have been requested for...
A one-year-old boy
A two and a half-year-old boy
Two boys aged 4 and 5
Six girls between 12-17
Two 13-year-old boys
At least six girls ranging from 7-12
A fifteen-year-old boy who is quite tall (over 6ft)
Approx 25 women between 30-40
