Seven Wexford-based charities and community organisations have become the latest beneficiaries of Aldi’s Community Grants programme, with each receiving a €500 grant from the Aldi store teams in County Wexford.
€500 grants were presented to Jonah Special School, St. Garvans National School, Pieta House Wexford, Irish Cancer Society, Alive Church, Talk To Tom and South East Animal Rescue.
Aldi’s Community Grants programme helps fund local charities and community organisations that contribute vital work and services in their local communities. Each local charity supported is chosen by Aldi employees, enabling them to help the good, local causes they are passionate about.
The Community Grants programme has supported 850 donations to local charities to date. By the end of the year, the programme will have donated over €450,000 since its inception in 2016.
John Curtin, Group Buying Director, Aldi Ireland said: “We are proud to continue supporting local charities across the country through the Aldi Community Grants programme and we’re pleased to see the impact of our donation in the local communities for County Wexford.”
Operating seven stores in County Wexford, Aldi is deeply involved in the local community and partners with a variety of Irish food and drink producers across Co. Wexford and spent €9 million with its Co. Wexford suppliers in 2020.
