Galway Simon asks people to hold onto charity shop donations

The Galway Simon Community has closed both of its charity shops in the city, but is asking people to hold onto anything they were going to donate until after the crisis passes.

In order to protect both staff and customers, Galway Simon has closed its charity shops on both Sea Road and the Sean Mulvoy Road due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Unfortunately donations to our shops cannot be accepted while we are closed. Please do not leave any donations outside the shops as they will not be attended to.”

“For those of you who may be doing spring cleans while following the Government’s stay at home guidelines, we would ask if at all possible, to hold onto any clothes and/or bric a brac which you can donate to our shops when they reopen.”

“We will be delighted to accept donations at that time. Thank you for your support,” a statement from the Simon Community said.

The government imposed new restrictions last Friday to combat the coronavirus pandemic, with only essential retail outlets to remain open.
