Recently eScrip announced that Safeway and Vons were ending their contributions to nonprofits such as Church of the Resurrection.
Although the program will remain in place for a few local grocers such as Lunardi’s, we have been searching for a replacement which allows you to continue contributing while you shop.
Amazon.com through their charitable link as “Smile.amazon.com” permits the same type of donation program based on purchases made when you shop on line. We’ve set up an account for Church of the Resurrection. You’ve shopped through amazon.com, right?
How does it work?
- Go to https://smile.amazon.com/ch/94-6050228
- If you have an existing Amazon account, it will automatically link your account to Church of the Resurrection with your permission for contributions on eligible purchases made on line.
- If you do not have a current amazon.com account, it will ask you to register and select the organization you wish to donate to;
- Use the Resurrection Tax ID number to identify our church: 94-6050228.
- Then shop!
Resurrection will receive 0.5% rebate on eligible purchases made though smile.amazon.com. Most of the items that you buy will qualify. Think about what you buy during the year – there’s birthdays, weddings, stuff around the house you need, all kinds of things! If there are any problems with registration, contact the Parish Office 925-685-2288 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
