FEEDING AMERICA FOOD TRUCKS - October 15

DIRECT YOUR DOLLARS PROGRAM
St. Luke has the opportunity to earn $1,000.00 from SpartanNash, simply by shopping at local company-owned stores, including Family Fare (Coopersville & Allendale, including gas stations), and D&W Fresh Market (Grand Haven). Through the Direct Your Dollars program, we can turn eligible receipts into cash for church projects.
It’s easy! Every time you shop at Family Fare or D&W Fresh Market, save your receipts. They will be collected in a Direct Your Dollars box, located at St. Luke. We do need original receipts to earn the donation, so please, no photocopies.
For every $150,000.00 in receipts collected, we earn $1,000.00 donation. With your support - and your receipts - we’ll be raising money to purchase items needed. Start saving those receipts and ask family and friends to do the same! We’ll collect them throughout the year. We are about 1/3 of the way there. Keep 'em coming!
Please direct any questions to Jane Kieft or Muriel Peacock. Thanks from the St. Luke Craft and Knitting Group.
