Powercut Will Match Their Sales and Donate Much Needed Clothing to the Dublin Simon Community
With Over €25,000 of Clothing Projected to be Donated to the Homeless
Powercut will launch an initiative to donate much needed clothing to the Dublin Simon Community to clothe the homeless. From 15th to 21st February, for every sports bra or pair of leggings purchased from Powercut, the same items will be donated to the Dublin Simon Community Outreach and Health & Wellness programmes.
The clothing donated will be used for the comfort of those sleeping rough, along with the homeless community that are supported by the Dublin Simon Community Health & Wellness programme, in order to promote exercise for personal and mental wellbeing.
From the very first day Powercut launched, Founders Craig Mulhall and Brónagh McKay have been passionate about helping those in need.
Craig Mulhall, Co-Founder of Powercut, commented on the launch of the initiative, ‘Since the launch of Powercut in 2019, we have aimed to help those that need it most. The Covid-19 pandemic drove our desire to support others further, starting with the campaign we ran for healthcare staff from April to September 2020.’
He continued, ‘But for me, it’s a family thing, as I was always taught the importance of helping those who need it most. Growing up, clothing drives for Fr. Peter McVerry was a yearly fixture in my life, and the importance of supporting our communities was instilled in me. The homelessness crisis in Ireland is something that is not disappearing and being able to do anything at all to support is personally very important, and also for Powercut.
This is the second time Powercut will match sales and donate clothing to the Dublin Simon Community in this way. In 2020, the business donated €10,500 worth of product, equating to 253 pairs of leggings, and 175 sports bras.
Powercut project an additional €25,000 worth of clothing will be donated to those in need from 15th to 21st February. This would equate to 600 pairs of leggings and 400 sports bras.
To support this charitable cause, visit Powercut and purchase any leggings or sports bra from 15th to 21st February and you will be helping to clothe hundreds in need.
