The Simon Community :)

On Thursday all Ty's gathered into the library for a talk on the Simon Community. It was very interesting and I learnt a lot about the organisation. There are houses spread out in a number of counties in Ireland just for homeless people to go when they have nowhere else to sleep for the night.. A lot of activities take place in these houses also.
The teacher giving us this talk had volunteered with them over the summer and she was sent to a particular house to work with the people in it. Her main project was Art where the people in the house designed a canvas painting.The paintings she showed us were really good, and it showed so such effort was put into them.
I learnt that many people give up their time to volunteer with the Simon community to do other activities just like this. :)
