For the seventh year running, the St Vincent de Paul Society has partnered with IGA for a Christmas appeal set to make a difference to the less fortunate.
IGA is supporting Vinnies by collecting $2 at retailers throughout Australia, with the proceeds going towards an appeal to support drought-stricken farmers.
"We support many destitute clients who are in need of urgent financial assistance and this initiative with IGA assists us in providing personalised aid for those doing it tough," St Vincent de Paul Society St Therese Conference vice president Michelle Paine said.
"IGA has been a key supporter of ours for many years and we hope to see this partnership continue into the future."
The IGA at Trinity Heights is one of 1400 stores across Australia to partner with Vinnies for this year's cause, which has expanded to farmers due to worsening drought conditions.
IGA Trinity Heights manager Kevin Allen said customers have produced a swift response to the appeal since it launched in mid-November.
"The appeal runs right up to Christmas time, and customers are more than happy to put $2 towards a worthwhile cause," Mr Allen said.
"We had an impressive response from the appeal last year and we hope the result this Christmas will be similar."
Last year, the appeal raised $806,000 nationwide for Vinnies and Drought Angels.
The IGA Christmas Drought Appeal will run until Sunday, December 29.
