Three Covid-19 impacted community projects are set to receiving funding support from Tesco’s 2020 Community Fund Programme.
Cara House Family Resource Centre, Chime (Letterkenny Branch) and St Columcille Hostel for Homeless will share a donation of €1,000 from the Letterkenny Tesco store.
As communities across Ireland adapt to new ways of living, Tesco is lending a helping hand to causes and organisations that provide support in communities across the country. Every eight weeks, each Tesco store donates up to €1,000 shared between three local causes in its community. In this latest round of funding, Tesco stores across Ireland are donating €118,500 to local causes.
The Community Fund is one in a series of measures that Tesco has implemented to help those most in need in communities across Ireland during the Covid-19 pandemic. Tesco Ireland has donated over €478,000 through its Community Fund programme to local causes affected by the pandemic earlier this year; in March, the company also donated €150,000 split among three national charities – ALONE, Age Action and Family Carers Ireland – to support their efforts in helping the elderly, family carers and the most vulnerable members of our communities across the country.
