Well done to the Brennan Brothers and the people of Cork for coming out to help revamp Cork Penney Dinners and cloth the homeless for Christmas. The Christmas edition of At Your Service was updating the old and inadequate premises of Cork Penney Dinners and what a transformation it was!!! This was no small feat, as temporary premises had to be found and vital services: electricity, hot water etc had to be installed .The Brothers then decided to find another premises for a pop up Christmas clothing store to provide free new clothing to the homeless. It was touching to see the food outlets of Cork provide food while the old premises were out of order. Many local business provided labour and materials. The retail outlets provided free new clothes. It was a huge task and it looked as if they had taken on too big a task but they pulled it together at the last moment for a great reveal. This is what Christmas is about providing help to one another at this holy time of the year. God! we need to be content and thankful for the roof over our heads, our warm beds and the food in our cupboards. These people has sad stories of job losses and addiction problems. They need all the help they can get.
