Just Eat has announced that it has raised over €80,000 for long-standing charity partners Peter McVerry Trust.
Ahead of World Homeless Day on which falls on the 10 October, the food ordering and delivery app introduced a ‘Cycle for Good’ initiative which saw Just Eat donate 10 cents to the national housing and homeless charity for every Just Eat dublinbikes journey taken in the capital over the past 10 weeks.
Speaking about the donation, Fr Peter McVerry said: “With homelessness figures in Ireland are at an all-time high, it’s more important than ever to provide housing solutions to people in need."
McVerry highlighted that the recent donation from Just Eat will see eight people moved out of homelessness and into secure housing.
“The ambition for this initiative, and indeed all our work with Peter McVerry Trust over the years, was to raise awareness of homelessness and generate funds to help those most at risk in our society," added Amanda Roche Kelly, managing director, Just Eat. Ireland.
"For all too many, Peter McVerry Trust is #ThePersonWho provides them with support, encouragement and care."
