Event Details

50 Years of the Hamper Fund

It started back in 1972 with a trolley push from Stillorgan Shopping Centre to Leeson Street - the person pushing the trolley was Niall Sweeney (class of 1974) and it was organised by Fr JJ Harrison. 

We believe it was a Quinnsworth trolley and Pat Quinn himself filled it up with groceries.  

Little did they know how the hamper fund would grow over the next 50 years to what it is now.

This year, just like last year, many of the traditional fundraising activities have not been able to take place, so we once again ask for direct dnations via this page. Remember 100% of donations go to direct assistance as no administration fees whatsoever are deducted. 

 

The hamper fund is not just about Christmas – though Christmas is the pinnacle of the assistance it provides 12 months of the year.

And it’s not just about assisting a few selected families. Its reach is truly phenomenal –

You have of course the traditional families that it supports with hampers at Christmas – the number this year has increased with almost 250 families within Dublin communities receiving a hamper.

And when you add up all the members of the families, the number is over 1000 smiling faces greeting those CUS pupils delivering the hampers.

During the year the fund assists in many other areas including providing a hot breakfast to pupils of St Enda’s school in Whitefriar street. In some cases it’s the only hot meal they will receive that day.

It also assists Rhuama – the wonderful organisation that helps women who have experienced being trafficked for prostitution.

Another organisation it assists is Phibsboro aid. This is a voluntary senior citizen sheltered living group under the auspices of St. Peter’s Church in Phibsboro

Those are the four main areas of the hamper fund, but the fund also assists in other areas including traveller education, areas of homelessness and the UCD chapter of St Vincent DePaul.

 

It truly is something that CUS Past Pulpils can be very proud of and we'd love for you to continue the support you have shown over the year
