As part of Helping Hands Day on June 23, SpartanNash employees in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and Minneapolis volunteered at 14 area nonprofits, including Junior Achievement, Kids’ Food Basket, Michigan Vets Home and Special Olympics Minnesota. 

About 575 volunteers helped with landscaping, cleaning, painting, sorting donations, cooking and packing meals. The company has a third upcoming Helping Hands Day event planned for its Norfolk, Virginia, team later this summer.

In addition, SpartanNash raised $300,000 to support military and disaster relief heroes through its annual SpartanNash Foundation in-store fundraiser. This year’s beneficiaries included Honor and Remember, Operation Homefront and Convoy of Hope.

CEO Tony Sarsam said in a statement that the company’s goal of being “people first” means “committing time and resources toward helping communities thrive. 

“By focusing our efforts on our giving pillars of hunger, heroes and hope, SpartanNash strives to find meaningful opportunities to partner with our local community in fundraising and engagement efforts,” he said. 

“I’m proud that our associates share that vision, whether they promote our in-store fundraising campaigns or spend their workday serving others and having fun.” 

For the past 12 years, SpartanNash employees have participated in the annual Helping Hands Day, volunteering more than 25,000 hours with nearly 50 community partners. 

Since 2015, the company and its communities have donated $2 million in contributions to patriotic partners through the SpartanNash Foundation.
