Clothing Appeal for Fr William Stuart in Lebanon
As many of you are aware, Fr William Stuart, a native of Clontarf, has set up a school for Syrian refugee children living in Southern Lebanon. Because of this school, these children receive a basic education they otherwise would not get. They are living in tents, lacking the basic amenities we take for granted. Fr William is hoping that the three Clontarf parishes will contribute to a clothing collection for the children. He is looking for clothing for boys and girls aged between 3 and 16 including shoes (tied together with a label indicating size); hats and scarfs; towels and underwear. Personal toiletries are also very welcome, such as soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss, hair brushes, sponges, sanitary towels and other personal hygiene materials. It would be very helpful if the items could be labelled according to item, age and gender (e.g. trousers, age 6/7, boys). All the items will be brought to Lebanon in a large container lorry towards the end of the Summer. Items can be left in Saint John the Baptist Parish Centre, on Saturday, 19th and 26th June, between 9.30 and 11.30 am.
