August 13 Double Match Day at Oregon Meijer Benefits Helping Hands of St. Louis

OREGON, OH—Mark Your Calendars for DOUBLE Match Days on two Saturdays --  August 13 and September 10. Every $10 Simply Give card purchased on these dates at the Oregon Meijer, located at 1725 S. Wheeling Street, Oregon, OH, Meijer will provide an additional $20 contribution, effectively tripling all contributions made that day! Simply Give! purchases up to $5,000 will be matched by Meijer up to a maximum donation of $10,000 per pantry/campaign.

Meijer's Simply Give! program benefits Helping Hands of St. Louis and this campaign runs through Sat., Oct. 1, 2022. Every $10 Simply Give! donation card you purchase at the Oregon Meijer, located at 1725 S. Wheeling Street, Oregon, OH, is converted into Meijer food-only gift cards the Helping Hands Food Pantry and hot-meal programs can use to purchase needed items!  

"Please help us fulfill our mission feeding the hungry people who come to us for a meal by purchasing a food donation card during your next shopping trip to the Oregon Mejier," says Sue Shrewsbery, Helping Hands of St Louis Director. "Tell your family members, friends, neighbors and co-workers, because every dollar makes a difference!"

A HUGE thank you to Meijer and all who support this program! Meijer began offering Double Match Days in 2012 to highlight our commitment to feeding hungry families in the communities we serve across the Midwest. As a result, the Simply Give program continues to set year-over-year records, bringing its current total to over $67 million.

Every penny goes towards food purchases for our Helping Hands of St. Louis Pantry and hot-meal programs, where hundreds of men, women and children are served on any given day with food, groceries, hygiene products, clothing and household items. #SpreadTheWord #HaltHunger
