Mission for Area People and Meijer Partner this Holiday Season
One in ten Americans face food insecurity nationwide and our community continues to feel its impact. More and more members of our community are turning to us for help in ensuring they know where their next meal will come from. Mission for Area People has seen a continued demand in the last year and the resulting economic impact of our nation continues to bring great need and challenges to our community.
In response, we’re pleased to announce that Mission for Area People has joined forces with the Meijer Simply Give hunger relief program during this difficult time to help fill that void for our local families.
Each Simply Give campaign helps more than 260 food pantries in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Wisconsin feed hungry families by keeping their shelves stocked with food for those in need. The campaign also fosters a sense of community by encouraging Meijer 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.
Mission for Area People will benefit from donation cards purchased at the Meijer at 700 W Norton Ave, Muskegon now through Dec. 30.
Help us fulfill our mission of feeding the hungry in Muskegon County by purchasing a food donation card during your next shopping trip at Meijer. Tell your friends, relatives, neighbors and co-workers because every dollar makes a difference. Whether you shop in-store or online using Meijer Pickup or Home Delivery, consider adding a Simply Give donation card to your basket.
And when we give, Meijer gives. For every $10 Simply Give donation card purchased on Sat. Dec. 16, Meijer will DOUBLE match the contribution, meaning they will donate an additional $20. This means our pantry will receive a total of $30 for every $10 a customer purchases on that day.
Together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of our neighbors in need.
