Hugo Jellett, CEO Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation and Leah Naughton, Aldi’s Programme Coordinator.
Staff working at the Aldi store in Jigginstown have awarded the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation €500, recognising its work in the local community and to help support its vital services.
The programme provides each Aldi employee with the opportunity to nominate a charity, community group or not-for-profit organisation within their community for support.
The charities are assessed according to a defined selection criteria and the organisation deemed the most worthwhile receives a €500 donation from Aldi.
All of Aldi’s 128 stores have been allocated an individual annual bursary fund. The programme hopes to make a difference within the communities where the Aldi stores are based.
It focuses on helping to develop young people, combat food poverty and improving the well being of families.
