At Greyhound Recycling, generosity is a core value that we hold strong. Through Greyhound Giving in Action, we support the work of charities in our local area to help those less off than ourselves.
Recently we announced a partnership with an Irish based charity called the SCOOP Foundation, who provides support, education, and training to displaced young people at home and abroad.
Greyhound is supporting SCOOP in their work abroad in Ukraine and at home in direct provision centres throughout Ireland.
In 2022 Greyhound’s customers and staff helped SCOOP to:
- Deliver English courses for residents in Direct Provision near to our base in Clondalkin.
- Sponsored 1 pre-employment training programme in 2022 and have 5 planned for 2023
- Supported their Christmas party for those that availed of SCOOP’s services in 2022
- Helped SCOOP to purchase 16 generators and €1,000 worth of fuel for their work in Ukraine
- Bought snow tyres and snow chains for vehicles in Ukraine
We are humbled by the work this charity is already doing and we look forward to being able to support more of this work in any way we can. You can read more about SCOOP at their website https://scoopfoundation.org/
