A total of five Wicklow-based charities have become the latest beneficiaries of Aldi’s Community Grants programme, with each charity receiving a €500 grant from the Aldi store teams in County Wicklow.
€500 grants were presented to Open Door Day Centre, The Irish Horse Welfare Trust, Ash Animal Shelter, Arklow Cancer Support Group and Greystones Cancer Support.
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.

“The Community Grants programme is one example of how Aldi is committed to investing and partnering with local communities and charities across Ireland and we look forward to continuing this engagement into 2021.”
