Meijer Simply Give Campaign for Kokomo Rescue Mission 2024

Meijer Simply Give

You can financially come alongside the Kokomo Rescue Mission to help end local hunger, and you don't have to lick an envelope or fill out an online form!

The next time you shop at the Kokomo Meijer, simply pick up a gift card at the register (the cards come in $10 increments) to donate to the Kokomo Rescue Mission. We constantly need to buy eggs, butter, and milk to feed roughly 300 people a day.

We're excited to partner with Meijer to provide hunger relief to local families through its Meijer Simply Give hunger relief program now through June 29. Visit Meijer's website to learn more.
