Goodwill and SpartanNash team up to make a difference

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – With earth day less than two weeks away, you may be looking for ways to get out and make a difference in the community. We had Jill Wallace and Meredith Gremel in studio to talk about a special partnership between Goodwill and SpartanNash.

Saturday, April 22nd and Sunday, April 23rd donations can be brought to any of the Goodwill stores and donors will receive a coupon to use at any SpartanNash store. Including any Family Fare, D&W, or Forest Hills Food location.

The coupon include $10 off a purchase of $25 or more, as well as $1.00 off a purchase to use for Full Circle cleaning products and $1.50 off for a Full Circle breakfast item of $3.99 or more.

The partnership between Goodwill of Greater Grand Rapids and SpartanNash is in its seventh year. They’ve actually now expanded the partnership to include 80 grocery stores in North Dakota, South Dakota, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.

Since 2011 SpartanNash customers and associates have diverted 121,500 pounds of donations to Goodwill, converting to 26,000 hours of community service and towards Goodwill’s mission of providing employment.

We also have 10 schools participating this year that have donation bins inside their schools making it easy for them to donate and raise money. List of schools below.

Many are using this as a fundraiser. Every 40 bags that are collected, $25 is given to the schools. The schools with the most bags donated will get an additional $250.00
