Saline Area Social Services will be the benefactor of Meijer’s Simply Give initiative June 1, when donations by customers at the Ann Arbor-Saline Road store will be double matched by the company.
A gift of $100 would end up being $300, for example, and is provided to SASS in the form of gift cards that can be used to purchase food all year. The program allows for up to $25,000 in contributions per pantry.
Scannable donation cards will be available at each register.
Last week, the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive by the National Association of Letter Carriers brought in 9,156 lbs of food for SASS.
Mancino’s of Saline provided lunch for the postal volunteers.
