Save Your Family Fare Receipts!
St. Leo Parish has the opportunity to earn $1,000 from SpartanNash, Family Fare’s parent company, simply by shopping at Family Fare grocery stores. It’s easy to help us “Direct Your Dollars.” Every time you shop at any Family Fare store, save your receipts. We’ll be collecting them at the parish office and in the basket on the CARE table. For every $150,000 in receipts we collect, we will earn a $1,000 donation. Thank you for helping St. Leo Parish!
