Staff volunteering over the weekend painting murals at Depaul’s Little Britain Street hostel.
Crowe staff were busy over the weekend volunteering their spare time to begin the first stage of a large community painting project at local Depaul Homeless hostel on Little Britain Street, Dublin 1.
For the first of a series of planned volunteering weekends, staff designed a number of inspirational murals which were painted throughout the hostel. More artworks are planned in the coming weeks which will be co-developed with the services users of the hostel to draw from their personal memories and experiences.
Staff chose to work specifically with the local Depaul hostel at Little Britain Street for their 2018 CSR programme year after supporting the hostel through the seasonal “Presents for All” initiative in 2016 and 2017.
Speaking at the launch of the partnership, Crowe’s staff Community Impact Committee chairperson Nigel Kavanagh said that the staff’s decision to support Depaul was down to the importance of their work “The services that Depaul provide are essential in helping those who need it most, and take care of some of the most vulnerable people in our community. We are proud of being able to help Depaul this year.”
A number of fundraising initiatives have also been planned. Crowe staff recently raised over €2,000 sponsorship money by taking part in the 2018 Woman’s Mini Marathon in June. There will also be teams fundraising by participating in the Great Dublin Bike Ride and the Depaul annual Raft Race against Homelessness, taking place this September in Dublin’s Grand Canal Dock.
