€ 79,500 will be donated to local charities as part of Aldi’s 2021 community grants program
Four Westmeath charities and community organizations are the latest beneficiaries of the Aldi Community Grants program, and each receives a € 500 grant from the Aldi teams in Westmeath.
The grants went to Westmeath SPCA, Midlands Simon Community, My Lovely Horse Rescue and TEAM (Temporary Emergency Accommodation Midlands).
Aldi’s Community Grants program helps fund local charitable and community organizations that contribute to essential work and services in their communities. Each local charity supported is chosen by Aldi employees, which allows them to help the good causes they are passionate about.
