SpartanNash Employees Give Back For Helping Hands Day


Grand Rapids, Michigan-based SpartanNash is serving three communities near its corporate offices by reactivating its Helping Hands Day this summer.

At volunteer sites across West Michigan, Minneapolis and Norfolk, Virginia, SpartanNash employees have fulfilled and committed to more than 3,300 hours of service to nonprofits.

“Our SpartanNash employees have always been generous with their time and talents, and as part of our ‘People First’ culture, we were excited to get back out into our communities and volunteer,” said Tony Sarsam, president and CEO. “We are proud to see our team step up to make an impact for such worthy causes.”

Helping Hands Day volunteers participated in a variety of activities, including sorting food at food pantries, yard work, construction work, organizing and cleaning.

In West Michigan, 16 nonprofits benefitted from the extra helping hands, including organizations such as Access of West Michigan, Grand Rapids Home for Veterans and Paws with a Cause.

In Minneapolis, the teams supported organizations including The Bridge for Youth, Esperanza United and Solid Ground, among others. The team in Norfolk will provide volunteer service hours for organizations such as Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia, Portsmouth Humane Society and Goodwill on Sept. 15.

“Our employees’ volunteer efforts embody our Pillars of Giving, which are hunger, heroes and hope,” Sarsam said. “We have seen through the pandemic just how resilient our communities can be, and that inspires us to give our best every day and to provide support when we can.”
