NKC Partners with Meijer for Simply Give

This spring, a beautiful partnership bloomed as Meijer launched its #SimplyGive campaign and worked closely with North Kent Connect's Market to create awareness. The Market is just one of many food pantries in the Midwest the campaign raises money for.

When customers of the Rockford Meijer purchased a $10 Simply Give donation card between May 13 and June 17, they converted to Meijer food-only gift cards in order for North Kent Connect to purchase food such as whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins and dairy, available to clients for free. This amount was then double-matched by Meijer for Meijer Simply Give Double Match Day on June 1. For every card purchased on that day, Meijer will gave $20 to the program, resulting in a $30 donation for North Kent Connect. Learn more about Simply Give.

In addition, The Meijer LPGA Classic raised $1.1 million for the Simply Give program! Read the full story and hear remarks from our Executive Director, Claire Guisfreidi.
