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 campaign raises money for many food pantries in the Midwest, including the NKC Market.

Customers of the Rockford Meijer purchased $10 Simply Give donation cards between May 13 and June 17. These cards converted to Meijer food-only gift cards so North Kent Connect could purchase whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins and dairy, available to clients for free. Meijer double-matched the donations on June 1. For every card purchased on that day, Meijer gave $20 to the Simply Give 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 Guisfredi.
