Founded in 1969, The Capuchin Day Centre on Bow St, Dublin 7, it is well known that more than 600 hot meals are served there daily to anyone who calls. On Wednesdays, they give out over 1000 food parcels. During the week 'Safety Net' provide a doctor and a nurse on duty to all who need front line medical intervention. There are also hot showers and warm clothes available to anyone who needs it.
Br. Kevin and his team open early for hot breakfasts and close at 3.00 p.m. They are so grateful to all who want to get involved and who wish to volunteer. The great news though is despite the fact that they never do any formal fundraising, so many people get involved by making donations, etc. This was evident over Christmas 2011 especially and following the Today with Pat Kenny programme on RTE Radio 1. Good News.
