Meijer Holiday Simply Give Campaign runs through December 29,2018

sg8888SG999Davison Meijer has again chosen Outreach East to be the recipient of the Holiday Simply Give campaign! When you purchase a $10 Simply Give card at the Davison Meijer now through December 29, 2018, Meijer will match the amount, providing $20 for Outreach East’s food pantry.

Why is the Meijer Simply Give Campaign so important to Outreach East?
Meijer’s Simply Give Campaign is vital to Outreach East providing enough food to meet the needs of our ever-growing amount of clients. In 2017, we were very blessed by this program, having received approximately  $35000.00 from Meijer. That’s a lot of money for food, but it goes quickly because of the number of clients we help. We spend approximately $3600.00 every month for food for our clients, excluding the holiday meals we provide to families several times a year( Totaling over $48,000).To give you a better idea, in the past 12 months, we provided assistance to 6023 clients (2,063 families consisting of 3,410 adults and 2,915 children) and provided them with 145,432 pounds of food! So if you haven’t already picked up a $10 Simply Give card, please consider doing so because your $10 will provide $20 in food for our food pantry. Thank you!

As our number of families (especially seniors) continues to rise, this wonderful program helps us to meet the increased need! 100% of the money raised will stay right here in our area where it can do the most good.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
