JRS Ireland launched their 2012 Intercultural and Interfaith Calendar on Thursday 15 December with photos in the calendar celebrating the services they provide in Dublin and Limerick. Christine and Christopha, two asylum seekers, provided food for over 30 people at the event, which provided a seasonal opportunity to acknowledge the huge contribution of volunteers, without whom JRS Ireland would not be able to deliver it services. As part of the annual Christmas toy appeal, more than 200 toys were collected on the night, to be given to children in Dublin hostels. Eugene Quinn, JRS Director, thanked Aisling and Myles Garland, Brian Kelly and Donal Neary SJ, as well as the second Year students from Crescent College who collected over 80 shoe boxes for children in Knockalisheen.
