Mancelona Food Pantry chose for Simply Give program

The Mancelona Food Pantry has been chosen to be the recipient of the Gaylord Meijer  "SIMPLY GIVE"  program for this year.


The  "SIMPLY GIVE"  program helps to fulfill the needs of a food pantry partner when needed the most.


During the  "SIMPLY GIVE"  campaign, customers are encouraged to make a  $10  "SIMPLY GIVE"  donation upon checkout (at Gaylord Meijer).  The donation is then converted into a Meijer  "Food-Only"  Gift Card and donated directly to the Mancelona Food Pantry.

So, we are asking that you help us and this community by making that donation. *

As a special bonus....there are times when Meijer will double match the gift cards donations.  So, your $10 donation will bring an additional $20 to assist the pantry in purchasing food.  The Double Match Days are Friday, September 11 and Saturday, September 12, 2020.

With your help, we can take our community assistance to another level. We appreciate any donations. Please help us spread the "good" word.


*The donation can also be made directly to the Mancelona Food Pantry. The pantry will take the donation to Meijer to convert them to the "food only" gift cards.


This program starts on Sunday, Aug. 23, 2020 through Saturday, Oct 24, 2020.  Please remember the double match days.
