This signature program has generated more than $58 million thanks to the continued generosity and support of Meijer customers, team members and food pantry partners who are committed to helping feed hungry families in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin. The Meijer store in Sandusky partners with the Helping Hands Food Pantry here in Huron to ensure that all donations generated remain within the local community.
Instead of determining what food to donate, the Simply Give program is flexible allowing the pantry to choose the grocery items best suited for the families in the community. It even includes baby food, formula, diapers, and wipes.
The Simply Give program runs now through January 2, 2021. Note there is a Double Match Day, December 1, 2020 where Meijer’s will match what is given.
As in the past there are three ways to give.
1.) (Preferred) Write a check to Huron UMC and in the memo area of the check put Simply Give. You can drop off the check at the church office or mail it to: HUMC, 338 Williams Street, Huron OH 44839 ATTN: Simply Give. Make sure the check is at the church office by Monday, November 30 at noon so that it can be consolidated and delivered to Meijer’s by the December 1st Double Match date. Donations will be taken though December.
2.) You can also go to Realm and make the donation there. In the FUND field (defaults to African University) click on the down arrow and select Meijer Simply Give.
3.) During the Simply Give campaign, in-store customers are encouraged to purchase a $10 Simply Give donation card upon checkout. Once purchased, the donation is converted into a Meijer Food-Only Gift Card and donated directly to the Helping Hands Food Pantry.
Thank you for your support is this important ministry. The need is especially strong this year as families struggle with the impact of the Covid19 virus.
