Dublin Simon Community

Eaton joined forces with Dublin Simon Community on the homelessness charity’s fantastic “50 for 50” initiative — giving 50 vulnerable individuals and families a permanent home to mark its 50th anniversary.

Helping to open the door to a new home

Dublin Simon Community provides crucial services and support to people at all stages of homelessness in Ireland. The charity’s dedicated staff and volunteers work tirelessly to empower people to close the door on homelessness by providing housing, addiction treatment, and other targeted interventions, through advocacy and partnership. With more than 10,000 adults and children across Ireland now lacking a safe place to call home, the charity’s work is more important than ever to the surrounding community.

Ireland’s Construction Industry Federation partnered with Dublin Simon Community on its 50 for 50 initiative. Marking the charity’s 50th anniversary, the initiative aims to move 50 vulnerable individuals and families into permanent, safe homes. Every €20,000 raised by Construction Industry Federation members will enable Dublin Simon Community to acquire another sustainable home.

Our team in Eaton Ireland was enthusiastic about being the first to back this great initiative. We have now awarded Dublin Simon Community a grant of €20,000 to purchase the first home, and we hope other Construction Industry Federation members will be inspired to do the same.

However, we gave Dublin Simon Community more than just financial support. Having actively backed the charity for many years, our team members were also inspired to donate their time, energy, and skills to help it do even more to prevent and address homelessness.

Our team donated clothes, toiletries and sleeping bags for sale in Dublin Simon Community charity shops, as well as holding stock sorting days to help organize all the contributions received. Ice cream sales and collection boxes raised even more for the cause, and we’re further supporting the charity by donating Eaton products to its housing projects.

"I’m incredibly proud to support Dublin Simon Community’s 50 for 50, helping to put 50 families into safe, permanent homes."
