Meijer continues to grow brings additional opportunities to support local Kentucky communities through fun events for the entire family.
For example, Meijer brought the Jump with Jill Live Tour – the world’s only rock & roll nutrition show – to five school assemblies in Bowling Green this spring. The Jump with Jill Live Tour Presented by Meijer is targeted to children in Kindergarten through sixth grade, and teaches nutrition through music. The Midwest cast recently visited Meijer to get outfitted for the show.
Meijer is currently one of the sponsors of Eastern Kentucky University’s athletic program, as well as seven Relay for Life events through the American Cancer Society.
Meijer is also a longtime sponsor of Thunder Over Louisville, the nation’s largest annual fireworks display now in its 25th year.
To celebrate the 25th Annual Thunder Over Louisville, Meijer triple matched customer donations to local food pantries. Customers in the Louisville area generously donated more than $47,000 during the Spring Simply Give campaign, helping local food pantries restock their shelves.
That commitment to supporting hungry families, combined with a donation from Meijer, raised the local campaign total to nearly $190,000 for local food pantries.
