One hundred percent of funds will remain in the local communities in which they were raised and be donated to the area Habitat for Humanity affiliates. Since 2006, the SpartanNash Foundation has raised more than $2.1 million for Habitat for Humanity, helping more than 1,100 households with improved quality housing.

“As community members and neighbors, we must never forget about the impact that safe and warm shelter can have for someone,” SpartanNash senior vice president of communications, Adrienne Chance, said. “This fundraiser shows the generosity of our family of Associates and store guests and their sense of community.”

Store guests donated $1, $5 or $10 and also rounded up to the nearest dollar at SpartanNash-owned retail stores and fuel centers. Participating SpartanNash retailers included Family Fare, VG's Grocery, D&W Fresh Market, Forest Hills Foods and Supermercado Nuestra Familia. Online shoppers also had the opportunity to donate at checkout through Fast Lane.
