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.
I’m pleased to announce that the Christian Help Center has joined forces with the Meijer Simply Give hunger relief program this spring to help fill that void for our local families.
Each Simply Give campaign helps more than 240 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 converted into Meijer food-only gift cards and given to the local food pantry selected by the store.
The Christian Help Center will benefit from donation cards purchased at the Eastgate Meijer now through June 22.
I want to encourage you to help us fulfill our mission of helping feed the hungry in the Clermont county area 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 we give, Meijer gives. For the eighth consecutive year, Meijer will contribute at least $1 million to the 2019 Simply Give program.
We are very encouraged about this opportunity to serve the hungry in the Clermont county area.
