Local St. Vincent de Paul gets hundreds of extra calls for help

The St. Vincent de Paul organisation in Mullingar held their annual collection outside local chur­ches last Sunday, and has made it clear that many additional families are now struggling to survive, and they expect to be dealing with nearly twice as many appeals for assistance this Christmas when compared to 2020.

The charitable group have posted out up to 10,000 appeal letters in the Mullingar area and they have received a worthwhile response to date. They point out that all financial help is valuable, because of the very difficult circumstances of people. Some families have not enough and were trying to choose between paying overdue rent or electricity bills and buying food and the fuel to keep their home warm.
