Trócaire boxes

Category: FamilyParishSchools

A message from the CEO of Trócaire:

"Donations made through the annual Trócaire Lenten Campaign, especially the Trócaire box, fund lifesaving programmes around the world. Due to the necessary restrictions related to COVID-19, thousands of Trócaire boxes are sitting in homes across Ireland. This is the worst possible time coming just as the world’s poorest people need us most. Millions of people who live without access to adequate water supplies, sanitation and healthcare are now faced with the threat of COVID-19. We have done – and continue to do – so much to protect each other. Now it is time to protect the world's most vulnerable.

The contents of each and every Trócaire box, no matter how small, come together to make a significant difference. This virus knows no borders, but neither does our compassion. This year, you can return their Lenten donation in several ways:

• By checking with your local parish about how to safely return your box.

• Online at

• By post to any of our offices:
   Trócaire, Maynooth, Co. Kildare
   50 King St, Belfast BT1 6AD

• By phone: 1850 408 408

Caoimhe de Barra, CEO Trócaire, Maynooth.
