Outreach East and join forces in hunger relief program

DAVISON — Outreach East Emergency Resource Center has announced a partnership with Meijer to provide much-needed relief to local families facing food insecurity through the retailer’s customer-driven hunger relief program, Simply Give.

As the community continues to feel the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, uncertainty around guidelines and wage disruptions continue to place extreme pressure on low-income families, food pantries are seeing a rapid increase in demand in their communities.

Each Meijer Simply Give campaign replenishes the shelves of more than 250 food pantries in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Wisconsin.

The program encourages customers to purchase $10 Simply Give donation cards, which are then converted into Meijer food-only gift cards and given to a local food pantry in the store’s community.

Outreach East will benefit from donation cards purchased at The Davison Meijer Store now through July 3. In addition, Meijer will double match any cards purchased on Saturday, June 19, effectively tripling contributions made on that day. Meijer customers shopping online using Meijer pickup or home delivery can also purchase Simply Give donation cards as an add-on to their orders. — G.G.
