SpartanNash launches state Habitat for Humanity
GENESEE COUNTY – SpartanNash is pleased to announce the launch of its 9th statewide campaign to support Habitat for Humanity affiliates in the communities where the company operates D&W Fresh Markets, Family Fare Supermarkets, Valu Land, VG’s and Glen’s Markets stores. The statewide campaign runs through March 15.
This partnership began in 2006 and has raised more than $930,000 for Habitat for Humanity affiliates. Spartan associates have volunteered more than 2,500 hours toward helping build affordable Habitat homes.
Customers have an opportunity to donate toward the campaign by purchasing a Habitat for Humanity medallion at D&W Fresh Markets, Family Fare, Valu Land, Glen’s and VG’s locations.
The medallions are located at all checkouts (including self-scan) and customers may donate $1, $5 or $10 to help partner with Habitat families to build new and or renovate existing homes. When customers make a donation, they also receive four coupons towards their next purchase.
“SpartanNash Stores is thrilled to be working with Habitat for Humanity and the communities we serve to address the need for affordable housing. We recognize the importance of corporate leadership, fully understanding the power of smaller contributions from generous individuals,” says Meredith Gremel, Director, Corporate Affairs, SpartanNash. “Our financial backing – along with our SpartanNash employees volunteering on the job site and our assistance in raising awareness — can build not only homes — but hope — for Habitat partner families. This long-term partnership — along with the homebuyers’ zero percent interest mortgages — is what helps make dreams come true,” said Gremel.
Along with the scan campaign, SpartanNash Store associates have been involved with community events for Habitat for Humanity through volunteering to build Habitat for Humanity homes. This fundraising campaign brings together SpartanNash and Habitat for Humanity and is a celebration of both company’s shared values — hard work, dedication and community service. – G.G.
