As a result of Habitat for Humanity of Kent County’s partnership with the SpartanNash Foundation and 30 Family Fare Supermarkets, D&W Fresh Markets and Forest Hills Foods stores and Quick Stops in Kent County, the local Habitat affiliate received a $42,000 donation.
The donation will help local veterans build and repair their homes.
According to a press release, between Feb. 8 and 19, the SpartanNash Foundation hosted a company wide retail scan campaign in SpartanNash corporate-owned stores in eight states. Those who visited the stores during that time were able to donate $1, $5 or $10 to support 79 Habitat for Humanity.
In total, the SpartanNash Foundation’s retail scan campaign to provide shelter raised $202,350.
The retail scan campaign to provide shelter is the first of four fundraising campaigns the SpartanNash Foundation will execute in 2017.
Upcoming scans will support Special Olympics (May 3-14), patriotic partners (June 28-July 9) and community food pantries (Aug. 30-Sept. 10).
