The health and wellness of those who live in the communities we serve is important to us. For years, Meijer has sponsored mobile mammography units operated by Spectrum Health’s Betty Ford Breast Care Services that visit West Michigan Meijer stores.
Patients are seen inside the mobile units with walk-on patients welcome as scheduling allows. While insurance is accepted at these mobile units, there are also free mammograms provided for uninsured or underinsured patients who quality.
Meijer also partners with the National Breast Cancer Foundation during Breast Cancer Awareness month to promote the Pink Ribbon Produce Program in support of healthy eating and an active lifestyle.
Additionally, Meijer supports the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s Annual Wine & Wig event. This is a perennial favorite that combines a light-hearted, fun-filled night of camaraderie with fundraising for a serious cause. Attendees enjoy food, wine and auctions all while wearing wigs as a sign of solidarity with women coping with breast cancer or a cancer treatment that causes hair loss.
