Get Involved with Inner City Helping Homeless

Our charity partner Inner City Helping Homeless based in Dublin are hosting their annual Christmas Shoebox Appeal from this November. They're not waiting around to get started as demands are rising in Dublin city this year. We're encouraging our business customers and your staff to get involved to make this your business' great deed for Christmas.

Last year 26,000 shoeboxes full of essential supplies were distributed to rough sleepers, homeless hostels, women's refuges and families in emergency accommodation.

There's more...

We will be asking our customers to send us their photo of their filled shoebox through a form on our website. Even better, Energia will donate €5 for every photo submitted. All customers who submit their photo will be entered into a draw to win a prize from Energia! This submission page will be open from November 27th 2018 and we will notify you in advance by email. So get prepping your shoeboxes now in good time!
