An Cosán’s €10k to help disadvantaged young men
AN COSÁN in Jobstown has been awarded €10,000 through the Thank You Fund for the development of a programme for young men from disadvantaged areas.
A total of €100,000 is being distributed to 14 organisations from right across Ireland for innovative projects that will support and inspire young people.
An Cosán is set to receive the larger grant of €10,000, as judges felt it was “unique and compelling” and that with €10,000 investment they could achieve sustainable impacts in their community.
Comedian PJ Gallagher, a Coca-Cola Thank You Fund Ambassador, said: “I have been overwhelmed by the diversity, thoughtfulness and potential impact of the projects that have received funding today through the Thank You Fund.
“Coca-Cola invited non-profit groups to enter projects that would inspire and support young people and there is no doubt that the grant recipients and the proposed projects will certainly do that.
“I am humbled by the people working in communities throughout the island of Ireland and believe that the impact of the work they do with young people has an immeasurable impact on our society.
“I look forward to staying in touch with the recipients as these projects come to fruition.”
