Supporting the Troops
By teaming with customers and store associates, the SpartanNash Foundation raised a
record $300,000 for Give an Hour and Honor and Remember, two charities supporting
military heroes and their families. According to SpartanNash officials, it was the most successful company-wide fundraising effort to date.
The funds were raised through a 12-day scan effort
running from June 28 – July 9, where customers who
visited any participating SpartanNash-owned retail
store or fuel center in nine states had the opportunity to
donate $1, $5 or $10 at any checkout lane, with 100-per-
cent of the dollars raised split evenly between the two
The $150,000 being donated to Honor and
Remember will allow that organization to provide outreach and personalized Honor and Remember flags
to military heroes who died in service to our country.
Personalized Honor and Remember flags are regularly
presented to families of fallen service members and contain the name, theater of operation and date of death
of the individual. The flags are presented at both private
and public occasions.
Give an Hour is using the $150K donation to increase
counseling and mental health services to military
heroes, their families and communities affected by conflict abroad. In addition to pledging to “give an hour”
of their time each week for direct counseling, Give an
Hour’s volunteer professionals work to reduce the culture of mental health by participating in and leading
education, training and outreach efforts in schools, communities and military bases.
The SpartanNash family was gratified by “the overwhelming support shown for our military heroes during
the latest SpartanNash Foundation retail scan – our must
successful scan yet,” says Meredith Gremel, VP of corporate affairs and communications and executive director
of the SpartanNash Foundation. Grand Rapids, Mich.-based SpartanNash and its foundation “are deeply committed to supporting our military heroes in the communities we serve. Through our partnership with Give
an Hour and Honor and Remember, we raise awareness
and funds for military heroes and their loved ones, while
honoring sacrifices they made for our freedom.”
