The SpartanNash Foundation is pleased to announce that it has raised $20,200 for Habitat for Humanity of Kent County in partnership with SpartanNash store guests. Participating stores and fuel centers in Kent County included Family Fare Supermarkets, D&W Fresh Markets, and Forest Hills Foods and fuel centers. The campaign ran March 4-13, 2016.
SpartanNash (formerly Spartan Stores) has partnered with Habitat for Humanity affiliates in Michigan since 2006 and surpassed the $1 million donation mark in 2015. The company has also supported eight home builds with Habitat for Humanity of Kent County (the most recent of which was a home build for a veteran in 2015) and sponsored the 100th LEED-certified home by Habitat Kent (MI) in 2012.
In 2016, SpartanNash expanded its partnership with Habitat for Humanity affiliates in seven additional states (Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin) where the company operates retail stores. Together with the SpartanNash Foundation, $114,500 was raised and 100% of funds raised will be donated to the Habitat for Humanity affiliate serving the community where the dollars were raised.
