IGAs answer call to help flood-hit
THROUGHOUT the next month, IGA stores across the country aim to raise $500,000 for the Queensland Flood Appeal.
In addition to the delivery of supplies, a donation of $100,000 worth of IGA gift cards is being distributed to residents across Queensland’s worst flood-affected areas to purchase groceries and other essentials.
QNN IGA general manager Peter Love praised the efforts undertaken by IGA to ensure stores were kept well stocked.
“IGA Distribution worked overtime to assist retailers across the state support their local communities,” Mr Love said.
“Since the first floods, IGA’s number one focus has been delivering stock using any means possible, including Hercules aircraft and helicopters.
“We will not raise prices to offset the increased freight costs resulting from the floods.”
