We are committed to being a positive member of our local community. Wembley SUPA IGA supports a number of local not for profit organisations, sporting clubs and other community initiatives. We do this in many ways however most prominent is our own NeighbourHug initiative and IGA Community Chest programs.
NeighbourHug is our community responsibility program. Community is at the heart of all we do and through our NeighbourHug initiative we aim to look after our local community, through our very own version of a big, warm, neighbourly embrace.
Our local community is supported with NeighbourHugs through:
- Donating goods and vouchers
- Supporting local projects
- Raising awareness of a local cause and encouraging other community members to get involved
- Developing initiatives that benefit the well-being of our customers
- Looking after the environment.
Community Chest is an IGA initiative to raise funds for contribution to the local community. Every time you purchase a Community Chest product you are helping to support various organisations, sporting clubs, charities and community groups in the local communities that surround our store. That’s because a percentage from each Community Chest product sold is set aside for distribution back into the community.
Next time you are in the store look for the special Community Chest tickets on the shelves to help you identify which products help put something back into our local community. To find out more about how IGA Community chest is benefiting local communities all over Australia click here.
Wembley SUPA IGA also supports our local schools and not for profit organisations by donating a percentage of what their members spend in-store back to the organisation when they are part of our Rewards Club program.
