The Salvation Army and Meijer Partner to Provide Hunger Relief in
Traverse City 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. We are pleased to announce that The Salvation Army, Traverse City food pantry has joined forces with the Meijer Simply Give hunger relief program this holiday to help fill that void for our local families.

Each Simply Give campaign helps more than 230 food pantries in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Wisconsin 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 matched by Meijer and converted into Meijer food-only gift cards and given to the local food pantry selected by the store.

The Salvation Army food pantry will benefit from donation cards purchased at the US - 31 Meijer store now through Dec. 30.

We want to encourage you to help us fulfill our mission of helping feed the hungry in Grand Traverse 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 you give, Meijer gives by matching your $10 purchase of a Simply Give card! Pick up a Simply Give card at Meijer check out and add it to your shopping list...it is that simple. Scan at check out and your $10 simply Give donation automatically becomes $20 for the food pantry. 

We are very encouraged about this opportunity to serve the hungry in our community.

DOUBLE MATCH DAYS – Purchase Simply Give Cards, Nov 8 and 9th and Meijer will double match each card! $10 = $30
