Just Eat has announced that it will be donating €50,000 to long-standing charity partner Peter McVerry Trust.
Just Eat launched its Winter Charity Campaign, allowing customers to donate on the online ordering platform.
The online food delivery marketplace noted that, since the campaign launched at the end of November, a further €50,000 has been donated by customers on Just Eat.
Pat Doyle, CEO, Peter McVerry Trust, commented, “The money donated by Just Eat and their fantastic customers will be particularly valuable at this time of the year – winter is the busiest time of the year for our services, and also the hardest for those impacted by homelessness.”
Peter McVerry Trust
As part of Just Eat’s commitment to supporting Peter McVerry Trust, the Just Eat team recently took part in volunteer days at the trust’s service in Kerdiffstown House, in Naas.
The service, which was opened in November 2018, aims to support participants with housing, addiction, and mental health issues.
The Peter McVerry Trust team has supported many participants in Kerdiffstown House out of homelessness.
Currently, the service has 100 beds available for supported temporary accommodation (STA) placements for people from Kildare and Dublin.
The service also has a provision for emergency or adverse weather conditions.
Commenting on the Winter Charity Campaign, Amanda Roche-Kelly, managing director of Just Eat Takeaway Ireland, said, “It’s of the utmost importance that we continue our support of our long-standing charity partner, Peter McVerry Trust.
“The work that the Peter McVerry Trust team does is nothing short of incredible, and we are so proud to be able to support them through not only donations, but also by getting involved and volunteering at Kerdiffstown House.”
The campaign will run until 3 January 2023. As part of the campaign, Just Eat customers have the option to donate €1, €3 or €5 when ordering their favourite takeaway.
