Meijer Donation check presentation

Otsego Public Schools has $5,000 to give back to students and our school community thanks to the Meijer Team Gives program and our local Meijer store.

Community partners are a part of the culture in the Otsego community. Our students learn the benefits of giving back from the moment they become a student at OPS and Otsego was recognized for its commitment to the community with a donation from our local Plainwell/Otsego Meijer Store #191. The Meijer Team Gives program helps “to enrich the lives in the communities we serve,” explained Store Director Nate Halloway when he presented the check. He explained that each store receives $10,000 to give back to a non-profit in their community. Team members then vote on two recipients of $5,000 each that are meaningful to them. Because of Otsego’s partnership with Meijer and involvement in the community, team members chose OPS. 

“We are extremely thankful to our Meijer in Otsego for choosing us as their recipient as part of their annual Meijer Team Gives,” says Jeff Haase, OPS superintendent. “Meijer is an integral part of our school community and we’re thrilled to have these funds to go toward future student and community events.”

The check was presented to Supt. Haase at a Board of Education meeting. Joining Halloway were Angie VandenBerg, Meijer store Community Leader, and Rachel Dennis, Store HR Representative. Meijer chose the Otsego District Public Library as its other recipient.
