At IGA we are passionate about supporting our local communities.
We are devastated by the current bushfire crisis and have activated an Emergency Response Plan that has already raised over $280,000 to support those Australians affected. This includes contributions from retailers, matched by Metcash.
In addition to this, the business has donated $355,000 in the form of water, products and gift cards,
the total amount raised to date including our Rapid Response fund is $600,000.
Prior to Christmas, IGA and Foodland donated $90,000 worth of Gift Cards
to people who lost their homes in the fires in Adelaide.
Today, we’re announcing the launch of our in-store Bushfire Appeal. We urge our customers to purchase a $2 Bushfire Appeal Token at their local IGA, with 100 percent of funds raised going directly to Vinnies Bushfire Appeal.
These tokens will be in-store from the 9th of January 2020*.
We know when our IGA stores and their local communities come together, we can achieve great things. Thanks to your generous support over Christmas, to date we have raised $836,000 for Australians impacted by the drought. Now we ask for your help again, in raising much-needed funds for those impacted by these terrible fires.
*NSW stores only. Available in all other states from 12/1/2020 to 25/2/2020.
