Tesco Ireland has announced that it will dedicate the sixth round of its 2020 Community Fund Programme to COVID-19 impacted community-based projects around the country.
The causes across Ireland receiving funding include local groups of Aoibheann’s Pink Tie, Age Action, First Responders, GAA Clubs, National Schools and St Vincent de Paul services.
Every eight weeks, each Tesco store donates up to €1,000 shared between three local causes in its community, the retailer said.
In this latest round of funding, Tesco stores across Ireland are donating €118,500 to local causes.
Launching the latest round of donations, Kari Daniels, CEO, Tesco Ireland said, “We are pleased to be able to support the groups and organisations across Ireland that have continued to help their communities."
"As the impact of COVID-19 deepens, the funding of charitable organisations and community groups remains a challenge and we hope that the latest round of our Community Fund will help these causes as we approach the Autumn and Christmas seasons," she added.
Launched in July 2014, the Tesco Community Fund supports local causes in the communities around its 151 stores throughout Ireland.
