Each year, Ashcroft’s IGA in Moss Vale gives money back to the community, raised from the proceeds of IGA products sold.
This year, Moss Vale CWA, Moss Vale Men’s Shed, Meals of Wheels and the Wingecarribee Animal Shelter will share in the $5000 raised.
Ashcroft’s IGA Moss Vale store manager Brad Payten said in his six years as store manager, about $40,000 had been given back to the Highlands community.
“Over 11 years IGA has given $70 million back to local charities around Australia,” Mr Payten said.
“We’re a locally owned store and we enjoy giving back to the community.”
Last week Mr Payten handed a $1280 cheque to CWA president Jennifer Bowe and she said the IGA had been a brilliant support to the branch.
“We really appreciate the IGA’s generosity and support,” she said.
“They’re always willing to help us out and let us sell raffle tickets here.
“Like the IGA, we are for the community and what we make here we try to put back into the community.”
