Support Us by Shopping Spartan Nash Stores

Silent Observer has the opportunity to earn $1,000 from SpartanNash, simply by shopping at any local company-owned store, including Family Fare Supermarkets, Forest Hills Foods and D&W Fresh Market. Through the Direct Your Dollars program, we can turn eligible receipts into cash for our organization!

It’s easy to help us “Direct Your Dollars.” Every time you shop at Forest Hills Foods or any Family Fare Supermarket or D&W Fresh Market, save your receipts. For every $150,000 in receipts we collect, we will earn $1,000 donation from SpartanNash. With your support – and your receipts – we’ll be raising money to continue to provide services to our community.

You can mail your receipts to Silent Observer, PO BOX 230321, Grand Rapids, MI 49523. We do need original receipts to earn the $1,000 donation, so please no photocopies.

Thanks to the Direct Your Dollars program, we can raise money for Silent Observer as we shop for our groceries each week. Start saving those receipts! We’ll be collecting them throughout the year.
