Lisa Marmion, Safe Ireland; Megan Bellew, Women's Aid Dundalk; Joshua Challoner, St. Patrick's Scouts; Kayleigh Mulligan, Louth Volunteer Centre and Gerry Byrne, St. Patrick's Scouts launching CRiTiCall Louth on 3rd July 2020 at Louth Volunteer Centre's Dundalk office.
The aim of CRiTiCALL in Louth is to support women and children in the area by facilitating the donation of critical goods to those that need it most. There are three ways to get involved:
• Donate: Purchase and donate much needed items for people accessing domestic abuse services.
• Volunteer your home: volunteer a holiday or second property as a safe haven
• Write letters of courage and hope to those emerging from domestic abuse.
In order to donate, you will first need to be registered with Louth Volunteer Centre. You can register here.
Our first CRiTiCALL event, held on the 11th July was extremely successful with clients of both Drogheda Women and Children's Refuge and Women's Aid Dundalk benefiting greatly from the generosity of volunteers. Our next donation day is being held on Saturday 8th August
