Youth Development Organizations
We are pleased to have a long tradition of supporting organizations and activities that benefit youth.
Meijer partners with The Detroit Red Wings to create a special opportunity for many young hockey fans across Michigan with the team’s Street Hockey Summer Tour. This tour makes stops at several Meijer supercenters across Michigan to host free hockey clinics geared toward children ages 7-12. The athletes are taught by Detroit Red Wings representatives, and local hockey players and coaches. Afterward, participants enjoy a pick-up street hockey game.
Meijer is also a supporter of The First Tee of West Michigan, an organization that helps students succeed academically, socially and athletically. We sponsor the organization’s one-of-a-kind afterschool program, Homework & Hitting, which has been recognized at a national level by The First Tee. This innovative drop-in program invites students to do some homework, then offers them time to work on their golf swing, perfect their putting and get tips from coaches.
