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
For the first time in tournament history, the Meijer LGPA Classic for Simply Give Champion donated a portion of her winnings back to the retailer’s Simply Give program.
So Yeon Ryu from the Republic of Korea is donating $100,000 to the program that stocks the shelves of the retailer’s food pantry partners across the Midwest.
“On Pro-am day, I was joined with the CEO of Meijer and had a chance to learn more about the Simply Give program,” Ryu said. “I decided to donate to the program if I win this tournament, and that became my motivation. I am very happy that I could keep the promise to myself.”
Ryu won $300,000 from the $2 million purse, which is shared among the Top 10 players.
“Thanks to So Yeon Ryu’s generosity, the impact of the Meijer LPGA Classic is extended to additional hungry neighbors in the communities we serve,” said Rick Keyes, Meijer President and CEO. “We’re thankful at just how much she appreciates, and supports, what our tournament is trying to accomplish.”
To date, the Meijer LPGA Classic has generated $4.3 million for food pantries across the Midwest.
Our Partners at Work
The holiday Simply Give campaign is just around the corner, and our food pantry partners are gearing up to spread the word.
The holiday campaign runs Nov. 18 through Dec. 29 at each of our stores across the Midwest.
During each Simply Give campaign, which runs three times a year, customers are encouraged to purchase a $10 donation card upon checkout. Once purchased, the donation is converted into a Meijer Food-Only Gift Card and donated directly to the local food pantry selected by the store for that campaign.
In total, the Simply Give program has generated more than $43 million for local food pantries since its 2008 inception.
