On the heels of a record year, the Meijer Simply Give program kicked off its spring campaign May 14.
Last year, the Simply Give program set a record, generating $7.8 million for local food pantries across the Midwest. The 2016 holiday campaign resulted in more than $2.3 million alone, and since the program’s inception in 2008, Simply Give has donated more than $28 million.
Meijer customers are encouraged to purchase a $10 Simply Give donation card upon checkout. Once purchased, the donation is converted into a Meijer Food-Only gift card and donated to the local food pantry selected by the store.
The Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give begins next month and proceeds from the tournament will benefit the Simply Give program. To date, the Meijer LPGA Classic has generated more than $2.1 million for local food pantries.
The Simply Give spring campaign runs through June 18. For a full list of participating food pantries, please click here.
