Enterprise helps Simon again

Enterprise Rent-A-Car has again teamed with the Dublin Simon Community to help their campaign for the homeless over Christmas.

Up to 20 Enterprise employees have volunteered to collect bags of donated winter clothing and food hampers from companies and organisations around Dublin over a 10-day period.

The Enterprise team, with its dedicated van, aims to transport around 50 bags per day to the Dublin Simon shops on Thomas Street and Camden Street in the coming days.

The donations that Dublin Simon shops receive are extremely important as they provide clothing and other items to people accessing their services, including individuals who are sleeping rough or using the charity’s emergency, supported housing or treatment services.

Donated items are also utilised by service users who are preparing for interviews and work placements, with some eventually going to those moving into a home of their own. Any remaining items are sold in the shops to raise vital funds.
