Kirby employees raise money for Mellon Educate

  • June 1, 2017

    One of Kirby’s project teams raised €750.00 for Mellon Educate, an Irish charity which works to provide better standards of education to children in Africa.

    In addition to the donation, Padraic O’Connor, site supervisor with Kirby, will travel to Cape Town in November with a group of 27 Mellon Educate volunteers. During the weeklong trip to Cape Town, Padraic and his fellow volunteers will aim to build two schools in a local township. This trip will mark the 11th year in a row in which Padraic has volunteered for a building trip with the charity.

    We wish Padraic and his fellow volunteers the best of luck for the trip!
