This year’s spring Simply Give campaign was our most successful spring campaign in the program’s history, raising $2.9 million for hungry families in the communities we serve. The 2016 spring Simply Give campaign ran from May 8 through June 19, coinciding with the third annual Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give. The tournament raised $850,000 of the total spring campaign’s donation.

This was the most successful spring campaign in the history of the Simply Give program, elevating the total amount raised to nearly $24 million.

Our Simply Give campaigns give customers the opportunity to stock the shelves of food pantries in their own communities by purchasing a $10 Simply Give donation card upon checkout. These donation cards are then converted into Meijer Food-Only Gift Cards and donated directly to the local food pantry partnered with the store.
