If you are a fan of the LPGA, you can now go a step further and make a donation to a needy family at the same time.

The Meijer LPGA Classic announced on Wednesday that fans can text to donate SimplyGive - that's all one word - to 444999.

The Simply Give program hopes to feed hungry families in Michigan and the Midwest.

If you don't want to donate over the phone, you can also stop by any Meijer store and purchase a $10 donation card for Simply Give when you check out.

In the past, this program has raised more than $3.1 million to support food pantries.

Meijer is hoping to generate $1 million this year during tournament week.

The LPGA Classic takes place June 12 - 17 at Blythefield Country Club in Grand Rapids.
