The Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give is more than just a golf tournament.
It’s an opportunity for the entire community to come together to have fun while supporting the Meijer Simply Give program that restocks the shelves of food pantries across the Midwest.
The previous five tournaments generated more than $4.2 million for food pantries across the Midwest. The donations can be used to purchase food, baby formula, diapers and diaper wipes.
“As a mother of three children, including an infant, I know the financial strain of adding diapers, wipes and formula to a family budget,” said Brandi Chen, a Marketing Brand Planner for Meijer. “While I have been fortunate enough to afford the things my baby needs to survive and thrive, everyone’s path is different. For me, knowing that Meijer is helping babies to be fed, clean and dry absolutely makes me proud to be a team member at a company that gives and gives.”
But, last year, Chen took that pride to a whole new level and volunteered at the tournament.
“It was an honor” to be a part of an event that makes such a huge impact on the community, she said.
Her first experience volunteering in hospitality at Egypt Valley Country Club during the Pro Am was the “sort of organized chaos that I love!”
She’s looking forward to even more fun during this year’s tournament.
