THE true meaning of Christmas has not been lost in Abbeyfeale.
For the past number of weeks, the fifth year Home Economics students of Coláiste Íde agus Iosef together with their teacher Mrs Meade have participated in a major food appeal to help the St. Vincent de Paul society.
The students collected the food items for the hampers throughout November and December from the school community.
The donated food contributed to the production of 80 Christmas hampers which have been donated to the local charity. The hampers consisted of essential food items as well as some special treats for the festive season.
The students have expressed their thanks to local shops for their generous support, in particular Twohig’s Supervalu, Moss Harnett, O’Donoghues and Tesco Abbeyfeale along with McLernons and Roberts Pharmacy in Limerick who supported the appeal.
The hampers will be distributed by St. Vincent de Paul to families who are in need this Christmas time.
