Aldi's €500 for a Greystones charity
Aldi's Greystones store staff have awarded Greystones Cancer Support a €500 grant in recognition of its tremendous work and to help support its vital services.
This is part of Aldi's 2018 Community Grants Programme. Each employee had the opportunity to nominate a charity, community group, or not for profit organisation within the area. Nominated charities were then assessed according to a defined selection criteria, with the organisation deemed the most worthwhile receiving a €500 donation.
The grant was presented to Kathleen Kelleher, Angela McGlynn, Eileen Morris, Carol Kinsella, Mary O'Neil and Susan Chestnut from the Greystones Cancer Society by Ciaran Jensen, Aldi's Greystones store 'Charity Champion'.
Now in its third year, hundreds of charities have been supported by the programme to date with over €200,000 donated by Aldi.
'We are delighted our Greystones store employees have chosen to support Greystones Cancer Support's crucial work in providing support services for people with cancer and their care givers,' said John Curtin, group buying director.
'Supporting the local communities our stores serve is something that we truly believe in. Through our community grants programme and partnerships with both FoodCloud and youth organisation Foróige, we have been able to directly help many of the worthwhile charities and organisations making a huge difference to County Wicklow.'
