Jean Guilfoyle (Aldi) and Donna Barrett (Barretstown).
Aldi has announced that Barretstown is the latest organisation to benefit from Aldi’s community grants programme. Aldi’s Naas Jigginstown store staff have awarded the organisation a €500 grant in recognition of its tremendous work and to help support its vital services.
The money was presented to Donna Barrett of Barretstown, by Jean Guilfoyle from Aldi’s Corporate Buying Office.
Now in its third year, hundreds of organisations have been supported by the programme to date with over €200,000 donated by Aldi.
Commenting, John Curtin, group buying director, Aldi Ireland, said: “We are delighted our Naas Jigginstown store employees have chosen to support Barretstown. It plays a pivotal role in bettering the local community by offering free, specially designed camps and programmes for children living with a serious illness.”
“Supporting the local communities our stores serve is something that we truly believe in. Through our Community Grants programme and partnerships with both FoodCloud and youth organisation Foróige, we have been able to directly help many of the worthwhile charities and organisations making a huge difference to County Kildare.”
