A charity working across Ireland to support young people’s mental health has received a donation of €1,000 from the Amazon fulfilment centre in Dublin. Jigsaw aims to make youth mental health a national and local priority through the provision of advice and support, both online and in person, to young people aged 12-25 years old across Ireland. The donation from Amazon will help Jigsaw to make sure that young people across Ireland continue to get all the mental health support they need, no matter what their situation. Following the donation, the team from Jigsaw was invited to the fulfilment centre in Dublin to meet the Amazon team and share more about their work across Ireland.
Speaking on the donation and visit, Sam Moloney, an Area Manager at Amazon in Dublin who ran the fulfilment centre’s mental health initiatives, said “Jigsaw provides fantastic support for young people’s mental health, and we were delighted to have the charity’s team on site to meet us and share more about their work. I’m pleased we could lend a helping hand with a donation, too.”
Kyran Brady, who works as an Area Manager at Amazon in Dublin and nominated the charity for support, added “I’m glad Amazon is supporting Jigsaw with this donation. Many young people rely on the charity for guidance and support, and I’m really pleased that Amazon is recognising this by donating to the cause.”
Matthew Oakes, from Jigsaw’s Communications and Fundraising team, said “Jigsaw help young people with their mental health and every donation helps make that happen. We would like to give a huge thanks to Sam, Kyran, and all the team at Amazon for their donation, and for being so welcoming when we visited them.”
The donation to Jigsaw was made as part of Amazon’s programme to support the communities in and around its operating locations across the UK and Ireland.
