SKDP continues operations within Kerry’s Covid-19 Coordinated Community Support Service (Tel. 1800807009) and assists people across South Kerry by delivering food, fuel and medicines (as well as providing support and advice) to those cocooning or restricted during the ongoing public health emergency.
Additionally, SKDP were recently involved in a nice project after TK Maxx Killarney made contact, wanting to donate food items to those in need of a boost. Staff working as part of the TÚS scheme in the Killarney SKDP office sorted through thousands of goods and made up hampers containing foodstuffs and treats.
SKDP vehicles were then driven across the region to distribute to over a hundred deserving families, indicated through the insights of Officers working in our Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme, who know and work with groups in our South Kerry communities.
Another batch were distributed to our partners in KDYS’ Euróg Youth Centre, who passed along parcels to deserving clients of theirs. A great example of ‘we are all in this together’! Well done all and thanks TK Maxx Killarney!
