SpartanNash is committed to giving back to the communities where we live and work. Whether donating millions of pounds of food each year to fight hunger, sponsoring more than 4,000 community events and programs, volunteering more than 10,000 hours to help community nonprofits, creating more than 26,000 hours of workforce development training through our recycling efforts or using our resources and voice to raise awareness for vital needs, SpartanNash is committed to building local relationships and making a difference through our commitment to corporate responsibility.
Our Direct Your Dollars™ program is one of many ways in which we partner with our retail communities to help our neighbors. The program is built on the concept of shopping with purpose – meaning, our store guests can use their purchasing power to support their favorite nonprofits.
Through our Direct Your Dollars program, eligible nonprofit organizations can earn $1,000, simply by collecting $150,000 in eligible receipts from any of the more than 155 SpartanNash-owned retail stores or fuel centers in nine states.
All preschool and K-12 schools are eligible to participate, as well as school-sponsored groups and clubs. Faith-based and community service organizations are also eligible, as are nonprofit organizations with a 501(c)(3) determination.
Earning money through the Direct Your Dollars Program is easy.
Once a participating nonprofit group has identified a point of contact between them and their local SpartanNash-owned retail store, they can begin to encourage their members and the community to save their store receipts. When the organization has gathered $150,000 in receipts, the point of contact will fill out the “Direct Your Dollars Program Submission Form.”
Using the submission form and the receipts, the local store director will verify that $150,000 has been collected and a check for $1,000 will be awarded to the local organization.
The best part? The more receipts an organization collects, the more often it can earn a $1,000 check!
