TO HELP those in need this Christmas, Fairleys SUPA IGA and Vinnies have teamed up to launch their Vinnies Christmas Appeal.
As part of Vinnies Christmas appeal, IGA will once again be selling $2 Vinnies Christmas Baubles at all IGA stores until December 25. All funds raised will go directly to the Vinnies Christmas Appeal to support the work Vinnies does to assist people experiencing homelessness at the time they feel it most – the holidays.
Since 2012, independent retailers from IGA across Australia have donated over $1.5M as part of the retailer’s continued support of Vinnies and their dedicated work in helping those most in need during the festive season. The funds raised by generous customers and IGA staff have helped Vinnies provide food and vital support to thousands of people experiencing homelessness and disadvantage across Australia.
Vinnies ambassador, Belinda Russell said, “I’m incredibly proud to be a part of the St Vincent de Paul Society’s Christmas Appeal. Vinnies says, ‘Christmas without joy is not Christmas at all’ and it’s so true. Vinnies and IGA are all about helping those who need it the most and at Christmas time that’s when we need to do our little bit to spread that Christmas cheer.”
