Community Action House is proud to announce partnership with Meijer this holiday season to provide much-needed hunger relief to local families through Simply Give. Donation cards purchased at the Meijer store located at 3320 W Shore Drive in Holland's north side will be matched by Meijer now through December 30th in support of hunger relief programs at Community Action House, including hot meals at the Community Kitchen, two food pantry locations, and monthly food distributions. On two special days during the campaign, December 8 and 9, Meijer will double their contribution, turning a contribution of $10 into $30 of support of local hunger relief programs, up to $25,000 in total contributions.

"We've been able to start a dairy section in our food pantry, funded by this Meijer Simply Give cards. It's been going great: milk, cheese, butter, and yogurt are now a regular part of the pantry, and clients obviously love it." said Melissa Roessing, Stabilization Services Supervisor at Community Action House. Overall, the food pantry has seen a dramatic increase in the demand and usage of its services in the past months, and expects that trend to continue to through the holiday season.

Supporters within the community are asked to consider purchasing a donation at checkout when shopping the northside Holland Meijer store, especially as they prepare for holiday feasts during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Cards are available at any Community Action House location as well at the Meijer Store. For more information, contact Melissa: mroessing@communityactionhouse.org 616 392 2368 ext. 125
