Meijer Simply Give Food Pantry Donation Program



His Harvest Stand and Meijer Partner to Provide Hunger Relief in Zeeland Through Retailer’s Simply Give Food Pantry Donation Program

People in our community continue to struggle every day to pay their bills and put food on their tables. Some are even forced to choose between the two, a heartbreaking decision that no one should have to make. I’m pleased to announce that His Harvest Stand has joined forces with the Meijer Simply Give food pantry donation program this fall to help fill that void for our local families.

Each Simply Give campaign helps more than 200 food pantries in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky keep their shelves stocked with food for those in need. But it also fosters a sense of community by encouraging customers to purchase $10 Simply Give donation cards, which are then converted into Meijer food-only gift cards and given to the local food pantry selected by the store.

His Harvest Stand will benefit from donation cards purchased at the West Shore Dr. Meijer Store now through May 12.

This campaign will also feature the much-appreciated Double Match Days on April 11-12.  During these two days, Meijer will double match every customer’s $10 Simply Give donation to help boost support for our pantry partners.  This means that for every $10 donation card purchase, Meijer will give $20 to the program, resulting in a total of $30 donation.

I want to encourage you to help us fulfill our mission of helping feed the hungry in Zeeland by purchasing a food donation card during your next shopping trip. Tell your friends, relatives, neighbors and co-workers because every dollar makes a difference.

And when we give, Meijer gives. For the third consecutive year, Meijer will contribute at least $1 million to the 2014 Simply Give program.

We are very encouraged about this opportunity to serve the hungry in Zeeland.  For more information please call His Harvest Stand at 616-748-6003.
