The Donegal Diaspora in Boston has spearheaded a campaign which has raised an incredible $70,000 to help victims of the recent flooding here.
The money has been raised by members of the Donegal community living in America who said they could not simply stand by and watch fellow Donegal families suffer.
The money is to be forward in the coming days to the Irish Red Cross and will then be distributed to families and individuals who suffered greatly as a result of the floods.
The group called the Homes of Donegal Fundraising Committee, gathered the staggering sum of cash through a range of fundraising initiatives including dances and raffles.
One of those who was part of the committee was Moville man Oran McGonagle who stressed that a range of people was behind the initiative.
The following is a press statement from the committee.Tags:
