Inspired by our purpose — enriching lives in the communities we serve — in 2021 we introduced Meijer Team Gives, a community giving program where team members find unique opportunities to make a difference.
Through this effort, Meijer empowers team members to help direct charitable contributions to local nonprofits that have an impact in their community.
In fall 2023, Meijer collaborated with team members across the company to identify more than 500 organizations to receive $3 million in corporate donations. Meijer Team Gives to includes not only our 260+ stores, but also our distribution centers, supply chain facilities and Team Member Resource Groups (TMRGs).
Team members from each group or field location worked together to determine how best to distribute their $10,000 in donation funds. Different groups approached the selection process in different ways, which makes the program unique and something our team members look forward to every year.
"We saw so much interest in volunteerism after the inaugural Meijer Team Gives, and it was amazing to see the way our team members became involved with the organizations we chose."
