GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A campaign run by Midwestern mass-merchandise chain Meijer to raise money for food banks has netted more than half a million dollars, the company said.
Meijer said customers donated $184,230 during Simply Give Double Match Days to help food pantries around the Midwest stock shelves, and Meijer double-matched the donations for a total of $552,690.
"The tremendous generosity of our customers is an inspiration for us all, and we cannot thank them enough for their partnership," co-chairman Doug Meijer said. "Our Simply Give program, along with the double-match efforts, really helps make a difference for all our struggling neighbors."
