Donate €2 from September 23-25
As part of SuperValu’s ongoing partnership with AsIAm, Ireland’s national Autism charity, a fundraising drive will take place in all SuperValu stores from the 23-25 September next, writes Rose Barrett.
SuperValu is encouraging customers to simply tap to donate €2 at tills when making any purchase across the 23,24 and 25 September to help raise much needed funds for AsIAm.
Funds raised by customers over the three-day fundraising drive will support autism inclusion through the work of the AsIAm Community Support Team, which works directly with autistic people and their families through a range of information, advocacy and support programmes.
Additionally, the Community Support Team will establish a AsIAm-SuperValu Community Support Fund which allow local community groups around Ireland to apply for small grants which will empower them to run projects such as social groups, subsidised therapies, group therapies and activity camps.
SuperValu continues to support the autism community and help create more inclusive communities across a range of initiatives including learning resources, awareness campaigns, community support seminars and autism friendly shopping in-stores. Together with AsIAm, SuperValu are on a journey to build more inclusive communities around Ireland.
Ian Allen, MD SuperValu said “Our partnership with AsIAm is hugely important and we are so proud to be able to continue to build on the impactful work done with AsIAm in stores and communities around Ireland.
Every single euro raised will enable us to deliver better support both through AsIAm directly and through our new Community Support Fund.”
