Our community continues to feel the impacts of COVID-19, especially our neighbors facing food insecurity. The economic impact of this pandemic means more and more members of our community are turning to us for help to ensure where their next meal will come from.
ICGC Food Pantry has seen demand increase by 60 % since March 2020, and the new year continues to bring great needs and challenges to our community.
In response, we are pleased to announce that ICGC Food Pantry has joined forces with the Meijer Simply Give hunger relief program during this difficult time
to help fill that void for our local families.
Each Simply Give campaign helps more than 250 food pantries in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Wisconsin keep their shelves stocked for those in need while fostering 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.
Our food pantry will benefit from donation cards purchased at the West Chester / Tylersville Meijer store now through July 3rd.
We want to encourage you to help us fulfill our mission of hunger relief efforts in our community by purchasing a food donation card during your next shopping trip to Meijer.
Tell your friends, relatives, neighbors and co-workers because every dollar makes a difference. Whether you shop in-store or online using Meijer pickup or home delivery, we ask you to consider adding a Simply Give donation card to your basket.
Double Match – And when we give, Meijer gives.
For every $10 Simply Give donation card purchased on Saturday, June 19,
Meijer will double match the contribution meaning they will donate an additional $20.
This means our pantry will receive $30 for every $10 a customer donates on that day.
We are very encouraged about this opportunity to serve our community Alhamdulillah!
