SpartanNash Celebrates Earth Week With Goodwill Partnership

Earth Week

To celebrate Earth Week and highlight its commitment to corporate responsibility, Grand Rapids, Michigan-based SpartanNash has launched its slate of Earth-friendly initiatives taking place companywide April 23-25.

For the 10th year, SpartanNash is teaming up with Goodwill Industries partners to hold Earth Week donation drives for customers and company associates. Working with Goodwill organizations in Michigan, Nebraska and South Dakota, customers who bring in donations to any participating Goodwill store between Friday, April 23, and Sunday, April 25, will receive a coupon book of savings.

“At SpartanNash, we love Earth Week because it allows us to engage and educate our associates, store guests and communities while celebrating and promoting environmental stewardship,” said Meredith Gremel, VP of corporate affairs and communications. “We were disappointed when we had to cancel our Earth Week plan in 2020 due to COVID-19, but we are excited to bring back our Goodwill partnership this year. We also take this opportunity to raise awareness for the need to recycle, reuse and support Goodwill and its mission of reinvesting in workforce development training.” 

The book of savings includes coupons for organic and ecofriendly products – as well as a coupon for $10 off a $25 or more purchase, redeemable at Family Fare, D&W Fresh Market, VG’s Grocery, Supermercado Nuestra Familia, ValuLand, Forest Hills Foods or any SpartanNash company-owned store.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with Goodwill and challenge our associates and store guests to do some spring cleaning for a good cause,” Gremel said. “By donating clothing, electronics and household items to Goodwill, we can reduce landfill waste, in addition to the great feeling of knowing these donations are generating thousands of hours of workforce development training in our communities.”

SpartanNash associates throughout the company’s 16-state footprint are invited to participate by bringing their donations to their local Goodwill store or other nonprofit partner as part of the company’s Earth Week initiatives.

Since 2011, SpartanNash’s Earth Week Goodwill donation drives have collected 1,317,925 pounds of donations, equal to more than 282,400 hours of workforce development training in the communities we serve.
