Customers and staff in the local Supervalu supermarket in Portarlington have generously donated to the Ken Smollen Food Appeal over the weekend. Trolleys were left in the store and the public could donate non-perishable goods into the trolley while they were doing their own shopping at the weekend.
Two big trolleys were quickly filled over the weekend and Ken Smollen was happy to collected the donated food which he delivers to people in Laois, Offaly and all around the midlands.
The people Ken delivers food to generally contact him when they cannot put food on the table after their bills are paid. He is now helping over 1,000 people who cannot afford their own food, with half of them being children.
Well done Portarlington !
