What does a pie in the face and building a house have in common? The employees at the Family Fare in Cedar Springs have the answer to that: $1,671.
That’s how much money they raised recently while selling medallions for Habitat for Humanity. And it was a high enough amount for Store Director Don Fetrow to get a whipped cream pie in the face.
The employees were split into two teams, and the team who raised the most money would get to do the pie in the face. They were challenged to surpass last year’s total, and sell at least $1,000. “They did that the first week,” said Fetrow, who good-naturedly wiped off the whipped cream. “It went well.”
The money raised will stay in the Kent County area.
