Meijer in the Community
Meijer Team Members Raise $3 Million to Support the United Way Workforce Campaign for Fourth Consecutive Year
We take our commitment to helping the communities we serve seriously, and we’re proud to say that the support and contributions of our team members help make that possible. For the fourth consecutive year, Meijer team members have raised $3 million for the United Way Workforce Campaign, which aims to improve people’s lives by meeting critical needs of the community.
Meijer has supported the United Way since the first store opened in 1934, and today extends the opportunity to our more than 65,000 team members to support the United Way by making a pledge taken through weekly payroll deductions. Each year, we collect the pledges after a three-week campaign and distribute the donations to 78 individual United Way organizations throughout our five-state footprint.
The $3 million donation from generous Meijer team members will make a big impact on the 2015 United Way Workforce campaign by creating waves of change in education, income and health to improve the lives of people in in our communities.

Our Partners at Work
Meijer supports a variety of health and wellness initiatives for our customers, and we’re pleased to partner with like-minded organizations like Purdue University Athletics. Earlier this fall, Sports Dietitian Lauren Link from the university’s sports nutrition department filmed a grocery store tour at Meijer, sharing the do’s and don’ts of grocery shopping. Take a look at her tips:
- Always shop with a grocery list, and base it off a meal plan if you keep one
- Organize your list in the same order that you’ll walk around the store
- Include produce, fresh meat, low-fat dairy, whole grains and staple pantry items on your list
- Shop for produce that is in season, and vary your selection based on colors and ripeness so some will last longer
- Stock up on proteins when they’re on sale to put in the freezer
- Buy the store brand
- Limit splurge items to one per trip
- Join the grocery store’s rewards program
