Elk Grove Township's food pantry is partnering with Meijer once again through its "Simply Give" program, which runs through Saturday, Dec. 30.
The program ensures all monetary donations that are generated remain in the local community.
When residents shop at the Meijer in Rolling Meadows, 1301 Meijer Drive, they can purchase a "Simply Give" donation card in any amount. The donation is turned into a Meijer food-only gift card and donated directly to the Elk Grove Township food pantry.
On Friday, Dec. 8, and Saturday, Dec. 9, 2017, Meijer will double match any size donation. For example, a $10 donation provides a total of $30 in support to the township.
