MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOTV) The generosity of Meijer and the West Michigan community means more food and healthier food will be on the plates of people in Muskegon.
Meijer presented the Catholic Charities food pantry in Muskegon with $51,260 in Simply Give donation cards for their participation in the spring Simply Give campaign. The spring Simply Give campaign raised $3 million for area food pantries, making it the best spring to date. The Meijer LPGA Classic of Simply Give raised an additional $850,000 in June 2016.
With the money the Catholic Charities food pantry can focus on providing healthier options for families such as fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables. They can also purchase diapers, wipes, and formula for families with babies.
Meijer Simply Give is entering its Double Match Days, when a customer’s donation is matched by Meijer times two! Double Match Days start on September 1 and run until September 3. Also this fall, Meijer will donate $5 to its Simply Give program for each flu shot administered at any of its stores.
