Outreach East and Meijer Partner to Support Neighbors Facing Food Insecurity in our newly expanded Davison, Goodrich, Otisville Communities Through Retailer’s Simply Give Hunger Relief Program (please see our service area map on the home page)
Our community continues to feel the impacts of COVID-19, especially our neighbors facing food insecurity. The economic impact of this pandemic means more and more members of our community are turning to us for help in ensuring they know where their next meal will come from. Outreach East Food Pantry and Emergency Resource Center has seen demand increase by 25% since March 2020, and the new year continues to bring great need and challenges to our community.
I want to encourage you to help us fulfill our mission of helping feed the hungry in our communities 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. Whether you shop in-store or online using Meijer pickup or home delivery, I ask you to consider adding a Simply Give donation card to your basket.
In This Campaign -( THE FALL SIMPLY GIVE ) Meijer has given us TWO DOUBLE MATCH DAYS !! Along with the regular match any time from now til October 1,2022
Please consider these special days where what ever you donate Meijer will triple the amount that is given to Outreach East in food cards that we use to purchase food for families in need in our communities. You donation can only be used to purchase food through the Meijer Business to Business program. What a great way to assure your dollars at work for your community and just in time to restock up food supplies for the up coming holidays.
