Jodie O’Shea House has been locked down due to the Covid-19 crisis since March 16. As we are unable to accept all the wonderful visitors who usually bring food donations, and also experienced a big decrease in visitors in the month or so preceding lockdown, we are now in desperate need of food supplies.
We are appealing for immediate support, as we have 75 children in our care. Of course, we understand it’s very difficult for anyone to drop donations in person to our door, so we are appealing to any member of the public who may be prepared to send a payment for any item on the list below; we will do the shopping, send you a copy of the receipt, and a photo of the purchase. Any support during this Covid-19 crisis is highly appreciated.
JOS has been funded for the past 15 years purely by donations from generous visitors and stakeholders.
Thank you all so much for helping us, our wish list will be updated Weekly.
