Touching lives with kindness

Patrice Thornton

Aspen Ireland’s employees took part in two events in support of Mandela Day 2017.

In early July, 13 employees traveled to Epilepsy Ireland near our Citywest offices. We spent the day painting walls, ceilings, skirting and doors and were delighted to help out such a fantastic charity.

Later in July we supported the Homeless Street Café, a group of volunteers who offer food, toiletries, clothes and friendship to the homeless every Tuesday evening. The enthusiastic Aspen team eagerly donated items needed for this worthy charity and then assisted with food preparation and supplies while some helped with the distribution from the Grafton Street location to about 100 homeless citizens that evening.

As one employee pointed out, ”I don’t know if I ever would have done something like this if it wasn’t for the great idea to incorporate it into the Mandela Day activities for APTL.

We can choose to make a difference every day. Our teams have continued with regular support of the Homeless Street Café, which is so heart warming for the beneficiaries and also for us.
