IGA backs farmers
THE owner of Michael’s SUPA IGA in Leongatha, Michael Lorenz donated $80,000 to the Rural Financial Counselling Service to support local dairy farmers recently.
The money was raised through the IGA Community Chest, which raises funds to support local charities, across Victoria.
Approximately 1300 IGA store owners across Australia collect funds through the sale of specially marked products.
Mr Lorenz said, “We want to thank the community for its ongoing support of IGA and our Community Chest program.
“These donations go some way towards helping dairy farmers in need. I personally have made an additional donation of $20,000 from Fairleys SUPA IGA to support our dairy farmers and their dedicated work for the local community.
“The community are able to support our local farmers when they visit us in IGA stores across Victoria buy milk from our local farmers.”
