|Support St. Mark's While You Shop!
St. Mark's currently has accounts setup with Amazon, Randalls and Kroger so that a portion of each purchase you make is returned to St. Mark’s. This way while buying your regular items you are also helping give to St. Mark’s. If you regularly shop at any of these three stores then here is what you need to know so you can link your shopping to our giving account:
Amazon: An easy way to give to St. Mark’s is to register your Amazon account to automatically, without any cost to you, donate .5% of your eligible purchases to St. Mark’s. The only thing different from a “regular” Amazon order is your order must be placed through www.amazonsmile.com versus www.amazon.com. It’s the same service and account information, just done through a different window. To donate to St. Mark's, go to www.amazonsmile.com to sign in to your Amazon account. You could bookmark this website to make it easier to remember to order through it in the future. Once logged in, you’ll see an option of “Change Your Charity” in the “Your Account” link. Type St. Mark's Episcopal Church (look for Richmond, Texas location) and our name will appear for you to click “Select.” That’s it! By just ordering through www.amazonsmile.com you can support St. Mark’s.
Kroger: Click here to register your account number and link it to a community rewards number. You can also do this at the customer service desk. St. Mark’s community reward number is MC904. Once enrolled, Kroger will donate a portion of your grocery bill to St. Mark’s every time you shop. This is a program where donations are given at no cost to you without affecting the points you earn. Please contact the church office if you would like assistance getting this set up.
