The Mid-West Simon Community has become the latest charity to benefit from Aldi’s Community Grants programme, receiving a €500 grant from Aldi’s Ennis store team.
The €500 grant was presented to Ciaran Ryan from the Mid-West Simon Community by Beverly Todd, Aldi’s Ennis store “Charity Champion”.
Aldi’s Community Grants programme helps fund local charities and 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.
The programme has contributed to over 340 different local projects to date, donating over €250,000 since 2016.
Commenting Barry Lee, Aldi Ennis Store Manager said: “The Ennis store team are proud to have chosen the Mid-West Simon Community to support. It’s a great cause and the work they do to alleviate homelessness and support those experiencing housing difficulties makes a huge difference to Clare.”
“Being part of and investing in local communities is something that Aldi is committed to and we are delighted to be able to make this contribution.”
Operating four stores in County Clare, Aldi is deeply involved in the local community. Through its partnership with FoodCloud, its stores in County Clare have donated over 28,000 meals to local charities to date, while as Foróige’s lead sponsor since 2015, it has helped support initiatives including the Aldi Foróige Youth Citizenship Awards and the Aldi Foróige Junior Baking Competition.
