Direct Your Dollars Campaign: earn money for NECM by simply shopping at SpartonNash’s corporate owned stores including D&W Fresh Market, Family Fare Supermarket, Forest Hills Foods, ValuLand, and VG’s locations in Michigan, and encourage your family and friends to do the same.  Simply collect original store receipts from these stores for NECM until you’ve reached $150,000 in eligible sales.   For each $150,000 spent NECM gets $1,000 in donations.

Drop off or mail receipts to:

Meijer Simply Give Campaign: NECM depends so heavily upon the ‘Simply Give’ Gift Cards which are generated through individual donations that Meijer Corporation matches.  Please help us promote this vital effort!

Please note that this is a campaign that is only active part of the year.

Just present a donation card to the cashier at the Plainfield or Alpine Meijer and $10 will be charged to their total grocery bill.  Meijer will then match what is donated and convert all donations into larger gift cards which will be given to the ministry at the end of the promotion.  This will facilitate a well stocked pantry at NECM!
