Kenmare Branch of the Saint Vincent de Paul Society wish to sincerely thank all those who supported their Christmas Fundraisers.
Christmas and the winter months are the busiest times of the year for the St Vincent de Paul Society as they provide hampers, fuel, basic clothing and financial assistance to families and individuals in need.
SVP offers a wide range of supports from practical help and advice to a friendly ear all in the strictest confidence. Sickness, loss of employment, marital breakdown, alcohol abuse and drug addiction are some of the reasons people approach SVP.
Other activities of the St Vincent de Paul include visits to those in hospital, nursing homes and in their own homes.
