Meijer is a family-owned company serving the needs of families at each of our stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin.
With the help from our Team Members and customers, we’re able to make the community a better place to live, work and play.
As we grow, we follow a simple philosophy established by our grandfather and father more than 80 years ago: “take care of your customers, team members and community … and all of them will take care of you, just like a family.”
We invite you to visit this site often to learn about how much our Simply Give campaign is helping our neighbors, about our sponsorship that brought the LPGA back to Michigan and more. Welcome to our Meijer Community!
Meijer in the Community
Each year, Meijer joins forces with law enforcement agencies and community partners across the Midwest to spread holiday cheer to children in need. The result: More than 100 Shop with a Hero and Toys for Tots events in Meijer stores throughout November and December.
A Toys for Tots event with the Saginaw area United State Marine Corps kicked the season off, and even drew interest from WNEM-TV.
Meijer donates thousands of dollars in Meijer gift cards for these events so children can have a happier holiday. Local police, firemen, Marines and community partners pair up with children to shop for gifts for themselves and their families. Each event is different with some featuring fun activities like photo ops with Santa, meals and event rides in police vehicles with sirens blaring.
“As a Marine myself, this is always one of my favorite events every year,” Saginaw Meijer Store Director Scott Neff said.
Our Partners at Work
Congratulations to Kettle Lake Elementary School in Alto, Mich., which was the 2017 winner of the Colgate & Meijer Recycled Playground Challenge, sponsored by Colgate, TerraCycle and Meijer. The school collected 12,094 pieces of recyclable oral care waste — a record for the most oral care waste recycled during a playground promotion, according to TerraCycle. The school will use their grand prize to enhance their school compound revamp.
“The students, staff and parents at Kettle Lake Elementary School have been recycling champions for years,” Principal Sean M. McLaughlin said. “As a Michigan Green School, we enjoy a great partnership with TerraCycle and our recycling efforts have helped educate families and develop positive recycling habits throughout our community. We were blessed to have so many Kettle Lake friends and families supporting our efforts.”
Meijer treated the students to hot cider and donuts after a recent ribbon cutting ceremony of the new playground made from recycled oral care products. This is the third year Meijer has sponsored the initiative.
