MEIJER STORES IN TRAVERSE CITY & ACME JOIN FORCES TO SUPPORT HUNGER RELIEF EFFORTS IN Northwest MICHIGAN
Lake Ann Food Pantry is a member of the Northwest Food Coalition, a Coalition comprised of 60 pantries and meal sites in Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, Leelanau and Wexford counties. The Coalition’s mission is to empower member food programs by coordinating and creating resources to achieve regional food security.
Since 2008, Meijer stores have conducted several Simply Give Campaigns each year to support area food pantries and baby pantries. For the 2018 Spring Campaign, which runs from May 13 – June 17, the Meijer stores in Acme and Traverse City teamed up and selected the Northwest Food Coalition as its recipient. During this time, customers will be encouraged to purchase one or more $10 Simply Give donation cards upon checkout at both stores. The donation cards are a tool that Meijer uses to administer the program and have no value. Once purchased, the customer will be given a receipt for their donation and the donation will be converted by Meijer into a Meijer Gift Card which Meijer will give directly to the Coalition upon completion of the campaign. The Meijer gift cards will be used by Coalition members to purchase food and other eligible items including baby food, formula, diapers and wipes, for distribution at their pantries.
Simply Give Double Match Day: On June 1, Meijer will double match every customer’s $10 Simply Give donation, up to a maximum of $25,000. What does this mean? $25,000 in customer donations on June 1 will result in $75,000 in Meijer Gift Cards for the Coalition!
If you would like your donation to be directed to the Lake Ann Food Pantry, please save your checkout receipt and either drop it off at the Pantry or mail it, by June 24, to: Craig Allen, 4511 N. Reynolds Rd., Lake Ann, Mi, 49650.
If you have any questions, please contact: Craig Allen - 616-813-9312.
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING HUNGER RELIEF EFFORTS IN OUR COMMUNITY!
