American super-center chain Meijer, which has corporate headquarters in mid Michigan, is a sponsor of the Saginaw Spirit of the Ontario Hockey League. As part of a Christmas holiday season promotion, Meijer is sponsoring a ‘Shop with a Hero’ event that features, among others, Sault Ste. Marie’s Nick Porco, a second year forward with the OHL Spirit.
The Meijer event is being utilized to try to connect Saginaw area families with first responder members during the holiday season. The OHL Spirit took part in the promotion which included Meijer stores in the mid Michigan areas of Saginaw, Midland and Bay City.
