Mr Price, with a store in Longford Retail Park, has teamed up with St Vincent de Paul to run a Facebook campaign to raise up to €10,000 for those in need this Christmas.
Christmas for some families can be stressful as they simply cannot afford everyday basics.
Mr Price has teamed up with St Vincent de Paul to run a Facebook campaign to raise up to €10,000 worth of Mr Price vouchers.
Each new ‘Like’ for the Mr Price Facebook page will translate into a €1 Mr Price voucher. The aim of this campaign is to ensure that each donation goes directly to the people who need it most.
Mr Price stocks a huge range of products including everyday essentials such as toiletries, cleaning products, food such as bread, eggs and milk.
Rachel O’Toole, Marketing Manager, Mr Price said: “Mr Price is dedicated to helping local communities. We believe that working alongside our charity of choice St Vincent de Paul will ensure that 100% of the donations will go to the intended recipients in local Irish communities. We hope this campaign will be the beginning of a long prosperous relationship between Mr Price and St Vincent de Paul.”
Tom MacSweeney, National Vice-President, St Vincent de Paul said: “We are delighted with this initiative from Mr Price. This is a particularly difficult time of year for people seeking assistance from St Vincent de Paul. This campaign will deliver practical help to these families and we urge everyone to ‘Like’ the Mr Price Facebook page.”
