Kildare Youth Services: The Great Soup Giveaway

KYS Great Soup Give Away - from L to R KYS Staff Eimear Flood, Karen Holligan, Roseanna Casey, Mark McCormack, Kathleen Barron, Tricia Brien, Edel Fitzsimons As part of the Kildare Youth Services Christmas Staff Day Celebrations, KYS staff annually takes part in a “Give Back to the Community” event. In previous years this has included gift wrapping for St. Vincent de Paul. Carol Singing in Naas Town and Care of the Aged.

This year we took part in two events. We were delighted to be able to carol sing and meet the visitors of Naas Care of the Aged. A wonderful time was had by all and a big thank you to the Care of the Aged for allowing our staff this opportunity to entertain.
Our second event was the “The Great Soup Give Away”.

KYS Great Soup Give Away - from L to R KYS Staff Steven Fahy, Sarah McElroy, Ann Linsley, Ciaran Hudson, Eimear Flood, Lorraine Shott & Roseanna Casey.jpg Kildare Youth Services in partnership with the Classic French Restaurant Vie De Chateaux in Naas, held this event in Naas Town. There were two soup points, one outside the KYS building in Basin Street and the other in Poplar Square.

Free cups of delicious soup were offered to passers by, hopefully warming their tummies and hearts. The aim of the event was to thank Naas and the county of Kildare for their continued commitment and help in the work of KYS in supporting young people and families across the county.

KYS would also like to take this opportunity to thank the students from Pipers Hill College who performed from their musical “Hairspray” at the KYS Christmas staff day. We were mesmerised by their talents. Congratulation on such a good performance and we look forward to seeing next year’s production.

If you wish to contact KYS, drop into KYS, Canal Stores, Basin Street, Naas, Co. Kildare or Phone: 045 897893.

Kildare Youth Services would like to Wish You a Very Happy Christmas and Peaceful New Year.
