SINCE EAST Coast fm began their give a gift campaign, the demand on Vincent De Paul has increased considerably- so the local radio station needs help from the people of County Wicklow more than ever.
This year's 'Give a Gift' campaign is underway. To take part drop a new unwrapped gift or toy worth a minimum of €10 in to the East Coast FM studio on Bray's Killarney Road.
'We need presents for all ages, girls and boys, men and women, babies, teenagers, toddlers and adults,' said organiser Claire Darmody. 'Please put a gift tag on your present to specify who it is meant for with the gender and age.'
All the gifts will be distributed by Vincent De Paul to the people who need it in County Wicklow.
St Vincent De Paul ask that all toys and gifts are new, no second hand toys or unwanted and unused goods.
If you can't get to the studio there will be drop off points at Kidzone in Wicklow Town, the Bridgewater Centre in Arklow, Londis in Aughrim, Dunnes in Blessington, Shoreline Greystones, Dunnes in Newtown and Avondale Sports in Rathdrum.
If you want to help by giving the gift of money, you can donate on line through www.eastcoast.fm/giveagift.
