Throughout November, 5% of the value of all JUST EAT orders will be donated to Peter McVerry Trust every Tuesday. Let your customers know that they’re ordering for a good cause!
As part of the initiative, JUST EAT is inviting consumers to choose from over 1,800 restaurants and 30 cuisines and enjoy their favourite take out food for a good cause on any Tuesday during November. In return JUST EAT is donating 5% of the value of every order placed directly to Peter McVerry Trust. JUST EAT is supporting the charity’s ongoing work to provide housing solutions for young people experiencing homelessness.
Peter McVerry Trust was responsible for launching Ireland’s first Youth Café in October 2015, offering an out-of-hours safe and supportive environment to children and young people who are homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless. The organisation operates Youth Café evenings with the young people and this provides them with access to advice on different areas such as wellbeing, cooking and help around living independently and seeking employment. As part of the November campaign, JUST EAT will support the Youth Café Evenings throughout the month with takeaway restaurant deliveries to the cafe and gift cards for each of the people who attend. In addition, JUST EAT will support two of the evenings with guest speakers and surprises along the way.
JUST EAT has actively supported Peter McVerry Trust throughout 2016. At this year’s JUST EAT Retreat at Electric Picnic, festival-goers enjoyed a relaxing environment, free entertainment and food and drink delivered by the JUST EAT Waiters, free manicures and haircuts. Treats were free of charge but festival goers were asked to give a voluntarily contribution in exchange for some luxurious pampering, raising more than €2,500 for the charity.
Anne Marie Connolly, Director of Fundraising of the Peter McVerry Trust, said: “We’re excited to be launching ‘Takeaway Tuesdays’ for the month of November with JUST EAT. Collaborating with JUST EAT this year has been beneficial for us at Peter McVerry Trust because it allows us to generate a greater awareness of the issue of homelessness within a younger demographic in addition to raising vital funds to help us support people without a home. We’re looking forward to a busy November and I hope the public will support this wonderful initiative.”
