Twice a week - rain, hail or shine - volunteers from Street Outreach assemble to distribute food and clothing to Dublin's homeless community. Living on the streets is extremely difficult, especially in winter, so we're always looking for volunteers. Just having a quick chat or even proffering a friendly smile can make a big difference to a homeless person. For those of you with a busy schedule, there's no need for a weekly commitment to this activity - just sign up whenever you're available! Whether you do it once a week or once a year, you will definitely find it worthwhile!
Phil, Úna and Cóman organise Street Outreach, and if you want to come then send them an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Social Justice Committee is Trinity VDP's newest activity and unique from the rest. The group meet once week to discuss the rewarding opportunities that the society offers and to educate others about the nature of voluntary work. This activity is all about both becoming more aware of the social issues that the people we work with are facing every day, and trying to seek practical ways to help those in need. Social Justice hold events on campus and invite guest speakers to raise awareness and highlight social problems.
If you're interested in getting involved with Social Justice, send Hugh, Jack and Andy an email at email@example.com!
