The Dublin Simon Community, while known for helping homeless people in Dublin, also help refugees and asylum seekers who are, or at risk of homelessness in Dublin. The advocate for these refugees and asylum seekers and guide them towards the essential services and resources they require. In the past we have raised a significant amount of money by holding ‘colour days’ in school where the children are asked to bring in a contribution towards the Dublin Simon Community to help to bring such essential services to refugees and asylum seekers here in Dublin. We have also had a Bake Sales to raise money and awareness for charities. Typically the children present a powerpoint presentation that they have created as a class at our school assembly prior to these fundraising events to bring awareness to the aim of the event. They also make posters to highlight the needs and purpose of the charity. It is a well organised charity.
