Nord Center will receive $5,000 as part of the Meijer Team Gives program – Morning Journal

Lorain’s North Center has announced that it will receive $5,000 through the Meijer Team Gives fall donation program. The organization is one of approximately 500 nonprofits to receive a surprise donation after being selected by a diverse panel of Meijer team members at the Lorain Meijer store.

“Not only are we thrilled to have these funds to support our mission at what continues to be a critical time for mental health, crisis and sexual assault services, but we are also humbled that members of the Lorain team have chosen our organization for this honor. said Nord Center CEO Don Schiffbauer.

The first-ever Meijer Team Gives event will donate approximately $3 million to nonprofit organizations, such as The Nord Center, identified by local Team Meijer members in their communities across the Midwest.

“What makes this event so special is the hands-on role our team members played in nominating and selecting nonprofits that would benefit in their own communities,” said Cathy Cooper, Senior Director community partnerships and donations for Meijer. “Our stores and distribution facilities know the needs of their communities because they live there and serve them every day, so we’re thrilled to have them leading this giving effort by identifying the local causes that matter most to them. .”

Earlier this fall, Meijer team members in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin formed a diverse committee at each store and distribution facility to nominate a or two local nonprofit organizations to consider a fall donation. Each store and distribution facility chose to award $10,000 to a local nonprofit or two nonprofits of $5,000 each at the Meijer Team Gives donation event.

The $5,000 donation will be used to support North Center’s ongoing efforts to expand and improve access to care.
