Bags of sandwiches were found in Dublin city centre this morning, accompanied by a lovely little sign…
Although everything has seemed a little doom and gloom lately, this morning, bags of O’Brien’s sandwiches were left on the streets for homeless people. Accompanying the collection of bags was a sign which read: ‘For homeless people! Happy St Patrick’s Day.’
The sign didn’t say who the sandwiches were from, but we can only assume the popular O’Briens Café donated them, based on the familiar green bags in which they were left.
This heart-warming act of kindness comes amid the wide-spread uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and the affect it will have on the more vulnerable members of our society.
Recently, a number of homeless day services were forced to close, due to concern about the spread of the coronavirus, diluting the amount of social support currently available for the homeless.
Considering the annual St Patrick’s Day parade was also cancelled last week, in an attempt to prevent further spread of the virus, it’s lovely to see that people are still celebrating in their own little ways and looking out for other members of the community.
It just goes to show, random acts of kindness are always invaluable and we should all try to look after ourselves and one another as much as we can.
