The hugely successful Presents for Percy Appeal is back for 2014!
The appeal managed by Donegal County Childcare helped 270 local families meet the Christmas requests of approximately 700 children last year.
And now the team at Donegal Childcare aim to match this achievement for Christmas 2014!
Avril McMonagle, Manager of DCCC said the Presents for Percy Appeal has been initiated by the DCCC Team as a practical way of making a contribution to children and families in need of a little extra support at Christmas.
“We have enlisted the help of a number of family support agencies to act as distributors of donations to the Presents for Percy Appeal. Not only will this make a valuable contribution to the work of local agencies working with children and families, it will ensure that all donations are targeted to those most in need of support right across the county’.
