Drive Rescue donation to Capuchin Day Centre, Dublin.

robert scanlon dublin capuchin day centreIn the hullabaloo of daily life, it can be easy to forget those less well off than ourselves. This year Drive Rescue made a donation to the Capuchin Day Centre in Dublin 7. Its founder, Brother Kevin Crowely runs an extremely lean and efficient operation, providing breakfast, food parcels, showers, clothes and medical services to almost 500 people a day. His centre gets €450,000 from the government of Ireland, but has running costs of almost €2.3 million. The funding shortfall is made up from the generosity of the Irish people. His centre does not spend money on advertising or PR campaigns. Administrative costs are kept to a bare minimum. Most of the funding they receive goes directly to helping those in need. It was a pleasure to help this very worthy cause.
