Aldi makes €500 donation to East Wicklow Youth Service
EAST Wicklow Youth Service in Arklow has been chosen as the recipient for a grant through Aldi’s Community Grants Programme.
Aldi’s Arklow staff were delighted to present East Wicklow Youth Service with a €500 cheque in recognition of its vital work and contribution within the local community and to help support its essential services. Sean Carley, Aldi’s Arklow ‘Charity Champion’, presented the €500 grant to Karen Nolan and Eileen Ward of East Wicklow Youth Service.
Finbar McCarthy from Aldi Ireland said: ‘ The work and services provided by East Wicklow Youth Service are crucial to the local Arklow community. We are delighted our Arklow employees have chosen to support the organisation. Giving back to the local communities our stores serve is something we are passionate about and we are proud to support the vital work done by charities and not-for-profit organisations across Wicklow. Last year we helped 120 charities and not-for-profit organisations nationwide and we hope to surpass that number this year.’
Now in its second year, the programme provides each Aldi employee with the opportunity to nominate a charity, community group or not-for-profit organisation within their local community for support.
