IGA Supports the 2016 Vinnies Christmas Appeal

Vinnies is thrilled to be partnering with IGA again this Christmas.  IGA has been a National Partner of the Vinnies Christmas Appeal since 2012.  Through the sales of IGA Community Chest products and Vinnies Christmas Baubles, IGA has raised over $600,000 for the Vinnies Christmas Appeal over the past four years. The funds donated from IGA have assisted Vinnies to provide food and vital support to thousands of people experiencing poverty and disadvantage across Australia.

To support Vinnies through IGA stores this Christmas purchase a specially marked  Community Chest product from the 30 November to 20 December 2016 at participating IGA stores.  Vinnies Christmas Baubles will also be available to purchase in participating IGA stores for $2.00 from 9 November to 27 December 2016 with all funds raised going directly to the Vinnies Christmas Appeal 2016.

What does your support provide?

• Vinnies provides basics such as food hampers and supermarket vouchers for people struggling to make ends meet.  In the last financial year Vinnies provided almost 1.5 million meals to people in need.
• Nationally Vinnies provides over $100 million in support annually to assist people experiencing poverty and disadvantage. This includes providing people with crisis accommodation, food, assistance with paying bills, clothing and furniture. Sadly, over the Christmas and New Year period the need only intensifies.
• Vinnies provides assistance on more than 1.1 million occasions per year.  Your kind support through the IGA and Vinnies Christmas Appeal allows Vinnies to continue to rebuild lives and restore hope.

IGA has over 1,400 stores nationally, all of which continuously help to support their local communities. Please click here to find your local IGA store and help Vinnies by supporting your local IGA store this Christmas.
