This month we added two new drop-off points in Dublin:
Thank you to you both and welcome to the Hygiene Bank community. We also received 420Kg of product donations which we are very grateful for. This included the following product donations:
Bodyform very generously donated pads for Dublin and the other Hygiene Bank projects around Ireland.
We received a hugely generous donation of lovely haircare products from Ciaran Nevin Hair Salon in Terenure.
A big thank you to Robbie at Medipharm for their fantastic donation of a variety of hygiene products.
From all the great support The Hygiene Bank Dublin in March was able to distribute 644Kg of hygiene products to those in need through our wonderful community partners.
Maureen’s Greengrocer in Stoneybatter has closed:
We, at The Hygiene Bank Ireland, want to say a huge thank you to Maureen for all your support. Maureen has been a fantastic help to us as a drop-off location and since October 2020 has collected a total of 262kg of hygiene products! After 40 years of excellent service, she is now closing her doors. Sad to see you go but no doubt you’ll continue to do great things!
In Galway we expanded our drop-off points to 14 with two new businesses joining us in the fight against hygiene poverty. Thank you to:
The Health Store, Briarhill
Loughrea CarePlus Pharmacy (Supervalu)
We would also like to welcome our new community partners, Clann Resource Centre Oughterard and Tacú Ballinrobe Family Resource Centre. We very much look forward to working with you.
This month The Hygiene Bank Galway received 363Kg of product donations. This included the Hygiene Bank Galway’s first trolley donation drive outside Dunnes Terryland. Thanks to the kind management of Dunnes Stores Terryland, we placed a trolley and signage outside Dunnes from 9am-5pm. We had some great interactions with the public and collected 40kg of hygiene products.
Due to the continued and amazing support of the public The Hygiene Bank Galway was able to distribute 348Kg of hygiene products to community partners across Galway helping those in need.
Thank you to all those helping us across Ireland we couldn’t do what we do without you.
