Donate a shoebox this Christmas!

Posted By The Marketing Institute, Thursday 23 November 2017

christmas shoebox appeal

This year again we're supporting Inner City Helping Homeless with their shoebox appeal, and we need your help!

Inner City Helping Homeless - a Dublin volunteer organisation - is appealing for Irish people to put together Christmas shoeboxes for the homeless in Dublin city centre. 

If you'd like to donate, please fill a shoebox and cover it with Christmas paper. Please wrap the box and its lid separately as each box will be checked to make sure all items inside are safe to distribute. It is a great help if you can label the box for who it is intended for eg. Male adult, boy aged 5-8, female adult etc.

Drop the shoebox in the Marketing Institute office in South County Business Park, Leopardstown and we will deliver it to ICHH.


What can I include in my shoebox?

Tooth brush – Tooth Paste
Shampoo – Shower Gel
Roll On Deodorant
Hand Lotion
Wet Wipes – Tissues
Underwear – Socks (white socks for men)
Hat – Scarf – Gloves
Small Torch
Chocolate – Crisps – Sweets
Brush / comb

What do I need to avoid?

Mouth wash
Hand Sanitizer – Hand Gel
Perfume – After Shave
Aerosol Deodorants – Aerosol cans of any type (hair spray – body spray)
Razors / Razor Blades

A little note or Christmas card is always appreciated and valued! 

The boxes will be distributed at the Fill A Tram event on the 14th December. It is an amazing day and great fun and atmosphere and Inner City Helping Homeless will be providing free breakfast, dinner and hair cuts to all of their homeless neighbours.


We thank you in advance for your help!
