On November 27th, Tesco Ireland launched its annual Christmas Appeal. They’re calling on shoppers to support families in need in their local communities, by donating a product in selected Tesco stores all across Ireland this Friday December 1st and Saturday 2nd.
If you’d like to get involved, there will be ‘shopping lists’ of potential items to donate available in stores this week. Those lists will feature non-perishable items such as teabags, biscuits, breakfast cereals and clothing.
Customers are encouraged to pick up just one item as they shop and donate it to the Christmas Appeal Trolley at the front of the store on their way out.
The annual Appeal has been extended this year to include toiletries, nappies, small clothing items and toys as well as food items to meet the needs to of local community.
Christine Heffernan, Corporate Affairs Director Tesco Ireland has said, “Christmas is one of the happiest times of year for most families. For others however, it can be really difficult and local charitable organisations do a huge amount to help families in need during the season. Our customers have been so generous every year and this year, we have 125 partner causes on board to collect items over the weekend.”
