IGA and Vinnies partner to raise money to help communities rebuild after the floods

Vinnies is delighted to be partnering with IGA again to support people in local communities that have been economically and emotionally affected by the recent NSW floods. The heavy rain that caused the natural disaster may have passed but the damage remains and the clean-up effort goes on.

In the immediate aftermath, St Vincent de Paul Society Members were on the ground providing assistance and we are now helping communities rebuild what was lost.

As always, Vinnies, with support from IGA will be there for thousands of Australians seeking assistance to pay their bills, rent and keep food on the table.

IGA has been a national partner of Vinnies since 2012. We’ve worked together since then to raise millions in support of people in need. Now we’re calling for your support to raise funds to support the those whose lives have been thrown into disarray and need a hand up to make ends meet.

Head into your local participating IGA in NSW before the 30th of April to help people in need by purchasing a $2 IGA Appeal token.

IGA Appeal tokens will be on sale in participating stores in NSW for $2 until the 30th of April 2021, with all funds raised going directly to support people in need.

What does your support provide?

Funds raised from the sale of IGA Appeal tokens will be used to help people rebuild and restore their communities after the floods. This help will be targeting people most in need of assistance.
