Aldi has announced that it has donated a series of €500 grants, amounting to over €77,500 in total, to 155 charities across the country in 2020.
The Aldi Community Grants programme, which was set up in 2016, helps fund charities and organisations that contribute vital work and services in their local communities, the discounter said.
'Local Good Causes'
Each local charity is chosen by Aldi employees, enabling them to help the local good causes they are passionate about, Aldi noted.
