Press Release

New Van is great boost for Simon Community

New Van For Simon Community

A corporate partnership between Dundalk Simon Community and  All-Tex Recyclers which began over ten years ago took a step further in 2009 as All-Tex Recyclers donated a van to the group.  

In addition to helping people to move into their own homes, the donated van will be used to collect donations, carry provisions and bring materials to the recycling centre amongst many other practical uses.

The joint venture highlights All-Tex Recyclers corporate commitment to invest heavily in the charities it supports and the company is interested in developing links with like minded charitable organisations that can see the benefits of working with a socially responsible company.

Speaking of the timely donation, Carmel Maguire, Manager of the Simon Community said: ‘This van is a wonderful donation as it will allow us to continue supporting people in a very practical way from being homeless to moving into their own homes. We have supported over 300 people to move from emergency homeless services into their own homes. With the right level of support, we try to ensure that people will manage to keep their homes and continue to lead fulfilling lives in the wider community’.

The relationship with All-Tex Recyclers will now continue to grow over the coming years, something Carmel is looking forward to. “We have had a very positive relationship with All-Tex Recyclers over many years. As the public of Dundalk and its suburbs grow we would continue to appeal to the public to support our work in a very practical and environmentally friendly way by donating clean used clothing and paired shoes to our shop which will help us to raise funds whilst helping increase reuse and recycling rates.’

Paula Mc Auley, Business Development Manager with All-Tex Recyclers stated: ‘We are delighted to be working alongside a leading charity like Dundalk Simon Community. At All-Tex Recyclers we take reinvestment in our partners seriously and we hope that this vehicle will provide many benefits in the months and years ahead to the Dundalk Simon Community.’
