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 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
We are proud to announce the success of this year’s Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give in its mission of raising funds and awareness to help end food insecurity across the communities we serve. Our third annual LPGA tournament came to a close with an $850,000 donation to the Simply Give program that has been restocking the shelves of local food pantries since 2008.
South Korean LPGA Professional Sei Young Kim took home the trophy at our third annual LPGA Tour event, which took place at Blythefield Country Club June 14-19, but the real winners are the families who will benefit from the donation.
The tournament and its support of the Simply Give program was more successful than ever this year thanks to the incredible support of local community members who not only attended the week of festivities surrounding the tournament week, but also purchased donation cards at their local Meijer supercenters.
“The difference all of this support has made is tremendous because this week was about more than just golf. It was an opportunity for the entire community to enjoy great athletic competition while supporting a very important cause – feeding the hungry,” Meijer Co-Chairman Doug Meijer said.
Our three tournaments have generated more than $2.1 million for the Meijer Simply Give program. This year’s $850,000 donation will be divided among more than 200 of our food pantry partners that participated in the spring Simply Give campaign.

Our Partners at Work
Meijer partnered with Autism Speaks for the first time this May to help put on the Chicago Autism Speaks Walk. The walk took place at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois and raised more than $800,000 to fund research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism, increased awareness of programs and advocacy for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.
We donated 15,000 bottles of water and 15,000 bananas to the event to ensure that all of the participants had a nutritious snack and stayed hydrated as they walked in support of such a good cause. Meijer even had a team walking in the event, led by Tom Dant, our own North Chicago market director.
