Ohio continues to be an important state to Meijer, which brings a variety of exciting opportunities to support the communities where our customers and team members live.
Meijer is pleased to sponsor the Cincinnati Bengals, as well as the annual Taste of Cincinnati event hosted by the Cincinnati Regional Chamber of Commerce.
In the fall 2013, Meijer had an opportunity to participate in an event that was never done before in Cincinnati: The Meijer Thursday Night Lights. Ten rival high school football teams shifted their Friday games to Thursday night so their five games could air live in primetime.
Not only was it great to see high school football on primetime TV, the event gave Meijer an opportunity to support the local schools through a donation. Meijer donated $500 to each host school, as well as prize packs that included Meijer gift cards, iPad minis, gas grills, and 40-inch Smart TVs, to raffle off at each of the five football games.
Meijer Healthy Living Advisor Janine Faber was also in attendance to share some healthy living tips with the crowd.
