A little change matters

2020 and 2021 has been tough. We know that for many, it has meant incredible loss and hardship. Suddenly, basic expenses like food and rent can seem out of reach.

But when locals are in need, we believe in the power of the IGA community to create change. That’s why we’re partnering with Vinnies to raise money for the people in our local communities who need support.

Please help by buying a $2 Vinnies Bauble or any specially marked Community Chest product at your local IGA. Your spare change really matters.
