The gift card that directly supports Independent Retailers, giving back to local businesses, local communities & local causes.
We work with a range of organisations across Australia to assist with their giving programs.
Many organisations choose to use our IGA Food Only gift cards – Accepted at over 1,390 stores across Australia, with a Strong Metro & Regional coverage. this card allows recipients to choose from our wide range of grocery products but excludes the purchase of Tobacco and Alcohol products.
In other circumstances, our Mitre 10 and Home Timber Hardware gift cards help recipients purchase hardware items to undertake repairs and enhancements to their homes and communities.
Across Food and Hardware, our Independent Retailers are family owned and run small businesses, employing local people and sourcing produce from local communities. They play a pivotal role in the community – often supporting local causes, schools and other local small businesses.
Last year, our Vinnies volunteers made 117,000 COVID-safe home visits across Victoria providing assistance and support to vulnerable people. The IGA Gift Cards are of enormous benefit, as they enable our volunteers to offer a ‘hand up’ for people who are, often, in crisis, going towards buying essential food and hygiene products. We are grateful to our supporters and the partnership with Metcash IGA.
