Cork Penny Dinners Christmas Appeal

Often a cup of tea, a handshake, and a friendly chat can go a long way. Cork Penny Dinners works every day to provide freshly made meals and a warm atmosphere to the homeless and to those in need in Cork City. Their services are free of charge.

This Christmas, Cork CIL has chosen to support Cork Penny Dinners instead of posting seasonal greetings cards. If you would like to join our effort for this worthy cause, donations of non-perishable foods, kitchen items, and warm clothing, would be greatly appreciated.
