During the Covid-19 pandemic our community support service expanded to offer help to the 'unseen' homeless in Navan. We had previously seen the homeless in Dublin when we visited with the Inner City Helping Homeless charity but rarely are we aware of those living on our local streets. In July 2020, 12 individuals were being supported on the streets with hot meals either made by residents or donated by Smith's SuperValu, and clothing, sleeping bags, and even tents, donated by members of the public.
The support is ongoing and involves several members offering their help to deliver hot food and supplies.
The Meath Chronicle covered our support group in action within Navan town centre in the run up to Christmas and February 2021
