General Announcements 

Meijer program to benefit St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry in Indianapolis through Sept. 28

The St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) Food Pantry in Indianapolis is partnering with Meijer again this year to provide hunger relief to local families through the retailer’s Simply Give program.

From now through Sept. 28, shoppers at the Meijer store at 5550 N. Keystone Ave., in Indianapolis, can help the Indianapolis SVdP Food Pantry by purchasing a $10 Simply Give donation card upon checkout. Once purchased, the donation is converted into a Meijer Food-Only Gift Card and donated directly to the food pantry.

Additionally, the store will offer double match days on Aug. 30 and Sept. 13. This means that for every $10 donation card purchased on those two days, Meijer will give $20 to the food pantry, resulting in a total $30 donation.

For more information on the Indianapolis SVdP Food Pantry, go to www.indysvdp.org. For more information on Meijer’s Simply Give program, go to www.meijercommunity.org.
