Aldi this week announced the Mayo Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is the latest charity to benefit from Aldi’s new community support fund. Aldi’s Claremorris staff have awarded the MSPCA a €500 grant in recognition of its tremendous work within the local community and to help support its vital services.
The €500 grant was presented to Shirley Mooney, head of fundraising at the MSPCA this week by Bob Alfis, Aldi’s charity champion.
Commenting, Finbar McCarthy, group buying director, Aldi Ireland, said: “We are delighted our Claremorris employees have chosen to support the Mayo Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals as they play a pivotal role in bettering the local community as a whole. MSPCA’s work in helping prevent cruelty towards and neglect of animals is vital. Supporting the local communities our stores serve is something that we truly believe in and we are proud to be contributing to the important work done by charities and not-for–profit organisations across Mayo through our community support fund.”
Aldi’s community support fund programme provides each Aldi employee with the opportunity to nominate a charity, community group or not-for-profit organisation within the local community for support. Nominated charities are assessed according to a defined selection criteria, with the organisation deemed the most worthwhile receiving a €500 donation from Aldi.
