Representatives from Spartan Nash, formerly Nash Finch, donated $500 to Southeastern Hospice House on Jan. 17. The money, which was granted to the distribution center in recognition of an achievement earned over 13 other distribution centers around the country, would normally go back to the employees for discretionary spending. Instead, employees elected to donate the funds to the nonprofit inpatient facility which treats terminally ill patients regardless of ability to pay.
