SuperValu  Christmas Charity Appeal

Every SuperValu store nationwide is celebrating Local & Irish this Christmas, so with the season of giving in full swing, SuperValu has launched their annual nationwide Christmas Charity Food Appeal. 

You too can do your bit locally by supporting your local Leitrim SuperValu who has launched their annual food appeal in all three stores in the county.  The Charity Food Appeal is held in association with St Vincent De Paul, The Simon Community and The Lions Club.  In a true celebration of Local and Irish, this Christmas, SuperValu stores will donate in excess of €300,000 to local causes in their own communities. 

Rolling out across the three SuperValu stores in Ballinamore, Carrick-on-Shannon and Manorhamilton from Monday 21st of November, shoppers will be invited to donate any non-perishable food product, like pasta, cereals etc. from their shop to the appeal, to help with those who are less fortunate.  SuperValu is making it easy for shoppers to donate to those deserving families so they don’t face an empty Christmas – just look out for the branded trollies at the entrance to the store until the 23rd of December.

Commenting today on the launch of Christmas Charity Food Appeal, Martin Kelleher, Managing Director of SuperValu said, “Christmas can be a time that puts a lot of families under pressure. Here at SuperValu, we value the importance of giving something back to our Irish communities and helping out in any way we can.  So, we’re asking our shoppers to get on board this Christmas and donate what they can through this worthy appeal we have set up in conjunction with our charity partners – St. Vincent de Paul, the Simon Community and the Lions Club.”
