A Dublin-based charity called Inner City Helping The Homeless (ICHH) recently asked the public for help with their Fill A Tram Initiative.
The project asked residents to fill shoe boxes with essentials like socks and toiletries, to wrap them like presents, and drop the packages off at Dublin’s Connolly Station.
The hope was that the charity would receive enough donations to do as the name suggests, fill a tram.
The ICHH of course was hoping for a successful collection, but they had no idea just how many shoe boxes they would end up getting. Once the collection closed at 7 p.m. on December 8, the tram had most definitely been filled.
Now, thanks to the kindness of Dublin’s residents, the city’s homeless population will be able to receive Christmas presents.
