Meijer Matches Simply Give Donations in Support of Hunger Action Month

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local NewsMeijer will once again double match every customer’s $10 Simply Give donation made Sept. 5th through 7th in support of Hunger Action Month, Co-Chairman Hank Meijer said.

“Despite the rebounding economy, hunger is still a problem that continues to grow throughout the Midwest,” Meijer said. “With the generous support of our customers and food pantry partners, we will continue to make hunger relief a priority because no one should go to bed hungry.”

The retailer launched the double match initiative last fall to showcase its continued commitment to help fight hunger in the Midwest and is pleased the efforts have helped restock local food pantries whose shelves are often depleted during the summer months when school is not in session.

Double Match Days are part of a $1 million contribution the retailer is making to its 2013 Simply Give program. Throughout Double Match Days, each customer’s donation will stretch even further: For every $10 donation card purchase, Meijer will give $20 to the program.

The Simply Give program runs three times a year for about ten weeks; the fall 2013 campaign runs through September 28th.
