Volunteers Help Beautify Our Clubs

Forty-eight combined employees from SpartanNash and The C2 Group volunteered a whopping 225 hours at our Paul I. Phillips and Seidman Clubs over the summer focusing on “beautifying” our Club spaces.

Volunteers from The C2 Group spent time at Paul I. Phillips reorganizing materials and storage closets, erasing fingerprints from windows and mirrors, but most importantly, helping clear space in our storage room by transporting any broken/unused furniture or materials to the dumpster. We now have extra space to properly store our gym equipment and a clear basement ready to be utilized.

SpartanNash definitely lived up to the “work before play” mantra at our Seidman Club. They helped spread 30 yards of mulch onto the playground and gaga ball pit. Other work included trimming trees and bushes, and reorganizing rooms and storage closets – making the areas look renewed. Once the work was finished, the volunteers enjoyed the rest of their time helping out with the daily programming. They assisted with art projects, gym activities, serving lunch, and friendly competitions of gaga ball. Some even received new hairdos from our members!
