Eurospar Supermarkets support St Vincent de Paul this Christmas
All in-store donations will be repatriated within local communities, with Eurospar Supereasy Supermarkets making an additional donation from own-brand sales in store
7 December 2022
Eurospar Supermarkets are once again supporting the St Vincent de Paul (SVP) ‘Empty Plate Appeal’ this year, which will help reduce the chances of a child going hungry this festive season. Throughout the campaign, all in-store donations will be repatriated within local communities so those most in need this Christmas don’t do without.
All in-store donations are distributed within the local community and, this year, as an additional measure, these Eurospar Supereasy Supermarkets will be making an additional donation from own-brand sales in store.
With nearly one third of all calls received each year by SVP a request for food, Eurospar Retailers are facilitating shoppers donating non-perishable items at their local Eurospar Supermarket for the benefit of their local St Vincent de Paul Conference. While shopping in your local Eurospar shoppers are asked to place any non-perishable items in the trolley or receptacle designated for the Empty Plate Appeal.
The campaign is taking place through Christmas and into early New Year and in order to allay any concerns around the distribution and transferral of food, all contributions will be converted to their monetary value in Eurospar vouchers at the end of the campaign. The vouchers will then be given to the local St Vincent de Paul Conference.
“Eurospar retailers have a long tradition of supporting charities and those most vulnerable in our society,” said Malachy Hanberry, Eurospar managing director. “Christmas is a time for giving and for generosity and their facilitating of this fundraising initiative, as well as the additional donations from own-brand sales in stores, for the St Vincent de Paul is another example of their commitment to the communities they serve.”
