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
In an ongoing effort to feed hungry families in the communities we serve, Meijer joined forces with Hormel Foods and Indiana Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch to donate 2,000 hams to Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana.
The hams were delivered to the food bank earlier this month.
“Meijer is a grocery store first, so food is at the core of what we do and the focus of our giving efforts,” Meijer Indianapolis Store Director Duane Russ said. “Because no one deserves to go without.”
Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana distributes food to more than 250 partner agencies in 21 Indiana counties.
Our Partners at Work
From toy drives to donations, the holidays are full of examples of people helping people. Meijer is involved in many local events during the holidays – from Toys for Tots to Shop with a Hero to our annual Very Merry Meijer customer surprise & delight event. But, this holiday season, involvement extended beyond our stores, as demonstrated by another important event with the Meijer Transportation Team.
Dec. 15, 2018, was National Wreaths Across America Day. On that day, at 1,640 participating locations nationwide, grateful Americans in every state placed 1,800,000 veterans’ wreaths on the headstones of our nation’s heroes.
For the first time, four Meijer truck drivers, veterans themselves, voluntarily transported 2,619 live balsam wreaths to locations in Michigan and Ohio. Several Meijer team members across the organization also participated by placing the wreaths on veterans’ grave sites.
“Many of our drivers are veterans so when the opportunity presented itself, we feel that this action would show our respect for those that served,” said Dave Hoover, Director of Outbound Logistics for Meijer. “We were honored to play a small part to remember the fallen and teach our children that value of freedom.”
Each wreath is a gift of respect and appreciation, donated by a private citizen or organization and placed on the graves by volunteers as a small gesture of gratitude for the freedoms Americans enjoy. For centuries, fresh evergreens have been used as a symbol of honor and served as living tributes renewed annually. Wreaths Across America believes the tradition represents a living memorial that honors veterans, active duty military members, and their families. Volunteers are asked to say the name of the veteran out loud when placing a wreath to ensure their memory lives on.
