A total of five Mayo-based charities and community groups have become the latest beneficiaries of ALDI’s Community Grants programme.
It will see with each charity receiving a €500 grant from the ALDI store teams in County Mayo.
Receiving grants are Mayo Addiction and Suicide Awareness, North Mayo Horse Sanctuary, Scouting Ireland 3rd Mayo Balllinrobe, Glencastle National School and Claremorris No Name Club.
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 local good causes they are passionate about.
By the end of 2022, the programme will have donated €537,000 to over 1,000 local charity branches and community groups across Ireland since its inception in 2016.
Receiving charities and organisations range from rescue teams to animal sanctuaries, cancer support to mental health support, or any charitable organisation that resonates with ALDI colleagues.
Operating five stores in County Mayo, ALDI is deeply involved in the local community. To date, the stores have donated over 28,000 meals to local charities through ALDI’s partnership with FoodCloud, saving the charities more than €35,000.
ALDI partners with five innovative Mayo food and drink producers, spending over €35 million with them in 2021.
