Our Commitment To Community
We are a neighborhood market. Gene’s Family Market associates live, work, and raise their families in the communities
where we do business. We consider it our responsibility to devote resources to improving the quality of life in our home
communities. We are proud to be Michigan owned and operated, and are supplied by Spartan Stores, also a Michigan–based
Few things promote a healthy business better than a vibrant community, but more than that, it feels good to know you can make someone else’s life a little brighter. We believe that when people work together, great things happen.

Gene's Family Market Tools 4 Schools Program (formerly Apples For The Students)
2017–2018 School Year – Receipts dated between September 1, 2017 and ending March 30, 2018 are valid.
Over the past 8 years our store, along with other supermarkets with the same passion to support the education of our students, have provided over $380,000 in FREE educational equipment! We want your school to get its share of the many items available…and it is free.
Unlike traditional fundraisers, Tools 4 Schools is easy and fun!
Everyone in the community can participate, from families to businesses to organizations! We know of no better way to serve the community than by enhancing the educational and developmental environment of our children. We look forward to your school’s success in this year’s program.
When you shop at Gene's Family Market, save your receipts. Better yet, don't just save your own receipts; ask your friends and relatives to save theirs, too! Send them to your school weekly and Tools 4 Schools volunteers will redeem them for computers, software, sporting goods, audio–visual aids, science items, books and other teaching tools FREE!
Since many of your students’ families currently shop at our stores, your school already has a strong base of support for this program. Best of all, everyone in your community can take part. It’s not limited to your school’s students, administration and faculty. In fact, the more outside interest and enthusiasm generated, the greater the benefits to your school. Get businesses, community groups and other school supporters involved! Reminder: Every school must register each year to participate.
