We are working on scheduling another Dining for Dollars event!
Yankee Candle Fundraiser:
We bring to FPC a Yankee Candle Fundraiser! Started July 17th and going through August 17th you and your friends can order from the catalog. Also started July 17th and going SIX MONTHS you can order online at https://www.yankeecandlefundraising.com/store.htm ! Yankee Candle will ship all online orders directly to your home! Unlike most fundraisers, the benefit is enormous: we will receive 40% of the total purchases! How awesome is that!
Coming soon – September 16, 2017
We all buy groceries, right? Well, Hannaford offers a community fundraising program in which we buy gift cards in any denomination and they pay our church back 5%. We have been running this program here at FPC since fall 2015 and it has been a such a great success! You can purchase a card Sundays in Currier after church. Once you have your card, you can repeatedly reload them through the church (also on Sundays in Currier) and FPC will continue to receive 5% of your grocery purchases! This is a great fundraiser because all it entails is buying groceries we would buy anyway!
Even if you’re not a Hannaford shopper regularly, you could still support the program (and the church) by purchasing the bonus cards we earn each week. We currently have several cards in a range of dollar amounts available for purchase. These make great gifts for your college student, a friend or neighbor going through a rough patch, a donation to a community organization or pastor’s discretionary fund, or just a “pay it forward” gift to someone in the grocery line! Thank you, everyone, for participating and making this program successful!
Shop at Amazon.com! Place an order through this link and a percentage of your purchase will go to First Parish Church!
