Meijer ITS Team Cares About the Community

Meijer ITS team members Matt White, Ricky Richards, Mike Drieband and Kathee Meinke participated in the personal care products drive.

The Meijer Information Technology Services (ITS) team showed their generosity with a recent personal care drive for Northwest Food Pantry. Together, they collected more than $1,000 in products including baby wipes, shampoo, conditioner, bars of soap, liquid hand soap and deodorant. Their donation will help fill the pantry’s shelves this month.

The Alpine Ave. Meijer store in Grand Rapids provides Northwest Food Pantry with food-only gift cards through Simply Give, the retailer’s hunger relief program. Simply Give has helped neighborhood food pantries keep their shelves stocked since November 2008. Since then, the signature program has generated more than $18.6 million, thanks to the continued generosity and support of Meijer customers, team members and food pantry partners who are committed to helping feed hungry families.

The holiday Simply Give campaign is going on now through Jan. 2. For more information on the program, please click here.
