SpartanNash Foundation Launches June 28-July 9 Campaign to Support Military

SpartanNash Foundation
The SpartanNash Foundation has recently launched its third company-wide retail fundraising campaign of 2017, and invites store guests to join them in supporting our military service members, veterans and their families.  

Store guests will have the opportunity to donate $1, $5, or $10 at any checkout lane in participating SpartanNash owned retail stores and fuel centers in nine different states, with funds being evenly split between Give an Hour and Honor and Remember.   

So far in 2017, the SpartanNash Foundation has executed retail scan campaigns to support Special Olympics, and Habitat for Humanity partners in local communities.  To date, nearly $485,000 has been raised through contributions from store guests and funds contributed by SpartanNash and the SpartanNash Foundation.

Independent grocers, and wholesalers across the nation join together with the National Grocers Association and ROFDA to help end hunger and raise community awareness by supporting Feeding America® and local hunger-relief organizations. Together, the independent supermarket industry can have a real impact in supporting the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization with an easy-to-execute fundraising campaign. The campaign, which enables customers to donate $1, $3 or $5 increments at the register, will run through the month of June, highlighting June 21, the first day of summer, as a “Day of Giving.”
