The SpartanNash Foundation will donate $260,000 to organizations whose missions closely align with its giving pillar of Heroes – including Convoy of Hope, Operation Homefront and Honor and Remember – following its annual in-store fundraiser.

“By contributing to this campaign, our community members and associates have helped provide vital services to military heroes, veterans, their families and those affected by disasters,” said Adrienne Chance, SpartanNash SVP of communications and SpartanNash Foundation executive director. “These incredible organizations are aligned with our commitment to support heroes and spread hope through our foundation, so we’re honored to celebrate another successful in-store fundraiser and continue to champion the work these organizations do.”

The three nonprofit organizations that benefited from the fundraiser will aid in disaster response, honor fallen heroes and provide essential financial and emotional support to military families. Outside of this retail fundraiser, SpartanNash also partnered with Convoy of Hope on its recent Helping Hands Day volunteer event, which resulted in a donation of 500,000 meals for disaster relief.

“We are extremely grateful to SpartanNash, the SpartanNash Foundation and their associates and loyal customers for their investment in our important mission,” said Brig. Gen. (ret.) Robert D. Thomas, president and COO of Operation Homefront, which has received more than $750,000 from the SpartanNash Foundation since 2018. “SpartanNash has helped us make a difference for thousands of military families, providing them with the opportunity to thrive in the communities they have worked so hard to protect.”

The in-store fundraiser ran from May 22June 10, where store guests at participating SpartanNash-operated retail stores could donate at the register or online checkout. Since 2015, the SpartanNash Foundation, with the help of its communities, has contributed more than $14.1 million to nonprofit organizations.
