Local charity, Killarney Water Rescue has received a grant for €500 from the TK Maxx and Homesense Foundation to support its ongoing efforts to fundraise for search and recovery equipment through their Community Fund Programme, following an application from an employee.
The Community Fund, which is funded by The TK Maxx and Homesense Foundation, is passionate about supporting local charities and invites associates, employees working for either TK Maxx or Homesense, to apply for a grant on behalf of a local charity that is important to them.
These funds will make a difference and help continue the work Killarney Water Rescue does in the lakes, rivers and the sea.
The donation was accepted on behalf of the charity by Diane Healy.
“On behalf of everyone here at Killarney Water Rescue, I want to thank everyone at The TK Maxx and Homesense Foundation for the generous donation which will be used towards our work in the community,” Diane Healy said.
Since the Community Fund started in 2015, over £1.5 million has been donated to various local charities across Europe.
A TJX Europe spokesperson added that at TJX Europe, they’re passionate about supporting local communities.
“We’re proud to be able to put the power into our associates’ hands and make a difference where it really matters. Because charity begins at home after all!”
