Kicking off our first of four companywide retail fundraising campaigns in 2017, the SpartanNash Foundation invites store guests to join us in supporting local Habitat for Humanity affiliates in eight states. The retail scan campaign to provide shelter begins on Feb. 8 and will run through Feb. 19.
During the 12-day span, store guests who visit any participating SpartanNash-owned retail store or fuel center in eight states will have the opportunity to donate $1, $5 or $10 at any checkout lane – and 100 percent of all funds will go directly to a local Habitat for Humanity affiliate.
In total, 79 local Habitat for Humanity affiliates will receive monetary support thanks to the scan to provide shelter, with many SpartanNash stores teaming up to support the same chapter in their area.
The SpartanNash Foundation has executed two previous retail scan campaigns to benefit Habitat for Humanity partners, raising nearly $250,000 in 2015 and 2016. Prior to the Spartan Stores-Nash Finch merger in November 2013, Spartan Stores conducted retail scans in its more than 90 Michigan stores to support local Habitat affiliates. Since 2006, more than $1.3 million has been raised to build hope and affordable housing for hardworking Habitat homebuyers.
