SpartanNash Foundation, Family Fare Supermarkets raise funds for Habitat for Humanity

GLADWIN AND OGEMAW COUNTIES – Gladwin-Ogemaw Habitat for Humanity is proud to partner with the SpartanNash Foundation during its retail scan campaign to help build hope and affordable housing in local communities. Between Feb. 7 and 18, store guests who visit any of the three Family Fare Supermarkets in Gladwin and Ogemaw Counties will have the opportunity to donate $1, $5 or $10 at any checkout lane, with 100 percent of dollars raised going to Gladwin-Ogemaw Habitat.

‘We are excited to partner with our local Family Fare stores again this year during the SpartanNash Foundation retail scan campaign. Last year over $2,000 was raised to support the mission of our local affiliate,’ said Rev. David Sprang, president of Gladwin-Ogemaw Habitat for Humanity. ‘This year we will be building a house for a partner family as well as placing another family into a recycled home. The support we get from this program is extremely important to the continuation of our work to help build hope and affordable housing right here in our communities.’

Gladwin-Ogemaw Habitat for Humanity is a United Way of Clare and Gladwin Counties Partner Agency whose mission to put God’ love into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope.

In total, more than 50 local Habitats in eight states will receive monetary support thanks to the SpartanNash Foundation scan to build hope and affordable housing, with many SpartanNash stores teaming up to support the Habitat in their area.

In addition to supporting their local Habitats, store guests who donate during the 12-day fundraising campaign will also receive four coupons toward Our Family-« and Open AcresGäó brand products.

SpartanNash – which owns the Family Fare Supermarkets supporting the local Habitat – underwrites the cost of the fundraising campaign to ensure all donations will have a significant impact in their local community where it was raised. SpartanNash also provides financial support, and many company associates volunteer at Habitat builds throughout the year.

‘The SpartanNash Foundation is our company’ charitable giving arm, supporting community nonprofit organizations that provide hunger relief, secure shelter and support our military heroes,’ said Meredith Gremel, vice president of corporate affairs and communications and executive director of the SpartanNash Foundation. ‘Through our retail scan campaigns, we have developed many strong partnerships with local Habitats, and, together with our store guests and associates, we are excited to continue to support their efforts in our local communities in 2018.’

SpartanNash is the fifth largest food distributor in the United States and has more than 140 corporate-owned stores in eight states participating in the companywide retail scan campaign.

The SpartanNash Foundation has executed three previous retail scan campaigns to benefit Habitat for Humanity partners, raising nearly $500,000 to construct new homes alongside hardworking homebuyers, provide home repairs and more. Since 2006, more than $1.5 million has been raised to build hope and affordable housing for hardworking Habitat homebuyers.

In 2017, more than $1 million was granted through the SpartanNash Foundation’ companywide scan campaigns, benefitting local Habitat for Humanity, Special Olympics, patriotic and food pantry partners.
