National Health Associations & Organizations
While we are so proud to support and partner with local organizations where our team members and customers live and work, Meijer also collaborates with national health associations and other groups on a range of activities. This ensures our support reaches the largest number of people possible.
One such national organization is Make-A-Wish, an incredible group that grants wishes for children and youth with life-threatening medical conditions. Our support ranges from hosting shopping sprees as part of a Wish Day for children with critical illnesses, to participating in Walk for Wishes, which raises money to grant wishes.
Meijer received the following letter from Make-A-Wish Wisconsin, thanking us and our team members for making a difference in the lives of children with serious illnesses.
“Your help is critical in helping fulfill our mission to grant the wish of every medically-eligible child. Your sponsorship of Walk for Wishes benefiting Make-A-Wish Wisconsin is helping hundreds of other kids across Wisconsin feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their illnesses. Thanks to donors like you, this year we granted 400 wishes — more than ever before in Wisconsin.”
We also partner with other organizations, such as the American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association, American Cancer Association and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation on their missions to educate and raise money to find cures for these serious health issues that impact thousands of people.
