Charities and Community Groups across Ireland are this week being invited to apply for funding through Aldi’s 2021 Community Grants programme.
Aldi said it will distribute more than 150 €500 bursary grants through the programme this year to local charities and community organisations that contribute vital work and services and make a real difference in their local communities.
 Staff from each of Aldi’s stores, its two distribution centres and corporate offices will select a charity or community organisation in its local area to award the bursary to, enabling Aldi’s staff to help the local good causes they care about, the discounter explained. 
 Charities wishing to put themselves forward for the bursary donation can apply at Aldi’s 147 stores across the country.
 Aldi’s Community Grants
Aldi’s Community Grants programme at the end of this year will have donated over €450,000 to more than 850 local charities around Ireland since 2016. Receiving charities and organisations have ranged from rescue teams to animal sanctuaries, disability support to mental health support, and everything in between.
 Commenting, John Curtin, Aldi Group Buying Director said, “The past 18 months has been hugely challenging for charities and community organisations who have seen demand for their services increase. 
“We need to continue providing these funds to support the organisations that make such a difference to the lives of so many in our communities,” he added. 
 Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys, added, “Aldi’s Community Grants programme showcases the deep involvement and commitment Aldi’s stores have to the communities they serve.
“These grants are invaluable to small charities and local community groups, and make a big difference in supporting them to carry out their much-needed work,” she said.
