Habitat for Humanity of Michigan is proud to partner with the SpartanNash Foundation during its retail scan campaign to help build hope and affordable housing in the local community. Between Feb. 7 and 18, guests who visit SpartanNash stores in communities throughout the state  will have the opportunity to donate $1, $5 or $10 at any checkout lane, with 100 percent of dollars raised going to Habitat.

“We are excited to partner once again with SpartanNash and communities across Michigan,” said Sandra Pearson, President and CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Michigan. “Long time friends and partners like SpartanNash help to make a strong impact for safe, healthy, and affordable housing in their own neighborhoods through Habitat for Humanity. We are most grateful for their commitment to community and shelter.”

Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to put God’s 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 same 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 Acres™ brand products.

SpartanNash underwrites the cost of the fundraising campaign so that all donations will have a significant impact in the 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’s 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’s companywide scan campaigns, benefitting local Habitat for Humanity, Special Olympics, patriotic and food pantry partners.
