This year , carepack.ie has to operate a little differently. Over Christmas of 2020 and 2021 our volunteers reached over 33,000 Care home residents with letters , parcels and amazing gifts. This was on foot of the brilliant initiative by AnPost which offered FreePost to Care Homes , under 2KG.
Last Years Info Video ( remember postage isnt free this year )
Some packs sent by Volunteers last year. See our FAQ for suggested items.
This year , whilst AnPost is not offering FreePost , we have been overwhelmed with interest and our Facebook/Instagram information posts have had reach of nearly 20,000.
Our call out this year is to Small , Medium and Large companies – remember Corporate Social Responsibility is not just for the big companies ! See https://csrhub.ie/what-is-csr-/
Our suggestion to volunteers is either to “Hand Deliver” to locally based care facilities they are matched with or to use the AnPost discounted “Gift Packs” of 1KG ( €6 ) or 2KG ( €9 ) . We are not affiliated with AnPost.
We would like to ask CSR coordinators to contact us at email@example.com , so we can work with you to provide as much information as possible to your teams. We are working to update our Infographics and helper videos , so that your employees can understand the process.
We can take part in Zoom info sessions by appointment.
