The Meijer Simply Give program – held three times a year – generated nearly $6 million in 2014 for food pantries throughout the Midwest, bringing the program’s overall donation total to nearly $14 million since it began in November 2008.
The retailer’s most recent campaign, which ended in January, was the most successful holiday campaign in the program’s history, resulting in a total of more than $1.8 million for hungry families.
“It’s inspiring to see friends and neighbors come together to take care of hungry neighbors throughout the communities we serve,” Co-Chairman Hank Meijer said. “We cannot thank our customers, team members and food pantry partners enough for rising to the challenge to Simply Give.”
