“Our community outreach pillars are hunger, heroes and hope, and Habitat for Humanity offers families hope by building strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter,” said SpartanNash Vice President, Communications Adrienne Chance. “We’re proud of the way our Associates and store guests rally around causes like this and make a real impact on the lives of their neighbors.”
The SpartanNash Foundation fundraising campaign launches today and runs through Feb. 20, supporting Habitat for Humanity in eight states. During the campaign, store guests will have the opportunity to donate $1, $5, $10 or round up to the nearest dollar at registers either at their local SpartanNash-owned retail store or fuel center. Participating SpartanNash stores and fuel centers primarily include Family Fare, VG’s Grocery, Dan’s Supermarket, D&W Fresh Market, Forest Hills Foods and Supermercado Nuestra Familia. Online shoppers can donate at checkout through Fast Lane. One hundred percent of funds raised will remain in the local communities and be donated to the area Habitat for Humanity affiliates and their homebuilding initiatives.
“We are thrilled to once again be partnering with SpartanNash to help support affordable homeownership throughout Michigan,” said Sandra Pearson, president and CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Michigan. “The pandemic has shown us just how important it is for everyone to have a safe, healthy place to call home. Our friends and neighbors at SpartanNash have been diligently serving our communities throughout the challenges of the past two years, and we are grateful for their continued partnership in making this fundraiser happen.”
