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 750 local projects to date, donating over €375,000 since 2016.
John Curtin, Group Buying Director at Aldi Ireland, which employs over 4,500 people nationally and operates five stores in County Louth, said that Aldi are very proud to be able to support local charities across the country through the Aldi Community Grants programme and are pleased to see the impact of their donation in local communities.
