You might not think that Amazon and stewardship go together but consider this. If you are already going to purchase something through the Amazon website, you can be a better steward of that money by utilizing the Amazon Smile program. We are so grateful to our parishioners for doing this. In the first quarter of 2021, Sacred Heart received $60.13.
Want to help the parish in this way? Start your shopping at smile.amaon.com and make your purchases there. The Amazon experience will be the same. However, in addition to getting the items you want, you will also be donating 0.5% of some of those purchases to Sacred Heart. You need to register and pick Sacred Heart as your charity. Just type Amazon Smile into the search box on the Amazon webpage and follow the directions.
AmazonSmile is a way for you to support our parish every time you shop with Amazon. You will find the same Amazon you know and love, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the price of eligible purchases to Sacred Heart Catholic Church.
