Dear Ms McCarthy,
On behalf of Peter McVerry Trust, I would like to thank you for your very generous donation of €540.00 raised at the two yoga classes in December.
Since 1983 Peter McVerry Trust has worked to tackle homelessness, drug misuse and social disadvantage and our work is as important today as it was then.
To address the needs of vulnerable young people we provide a range of services including homelessness prevention services, housing services, drug treatment services as well as under 18s residential services.
The need for our services remains high given the ongoing social and economic crisis. During 2013 3,586 people accessed our services and we provided 2,124 individuals with residential placements.
We rely on the generosity of our supporters to continue to provide these vital services and move as many people as possible out of homelessness.
Happy New Year to you and yours from all at Peter McVerry Trust.
