There are donation programs associated with various retailers that put aside a certain percentage of what you spend to donate to a nonprofit of your choice. Please note that we are not endorsing these companies or encouraging you to shop there in order to benefit the church, but if you already shop at these places, it is certainly an easy way to help the church by signing up for their donation programs. Here are a few of the major ones:
Kroger Community Rewards
Every quarter, Kroger Community Rewards distributes donations to a number of area nonprofits. If you shop at Kroger, please consider signing up. Signing up will NOT change anything about the individual benefits you receive from shopping. It will just mean that in addition, Holy Rosary St. John gets a donation. Details on how to sign up at hrsjchurch.org/rewards.html.
Walmart Spark Good
If you order through SHIP at Walmart.com (or on their app), you can choose Holy Rosary-St. John as your organization to support and "round up" to support our programs. This does not yet apply to in store purchases, but may at some point in the future, so even if you just shop in store (or for pickup), please sign up anyway, and you will be informed if that is eligible in the future. We may also post items we need from time to time (such as for our School Supplies Giveaway) that you can purchase and have sent to us. Go here to choose Holy Rosary-St. John as your organization to support: walmart.com/nonprofits/a99c0d7b-5818-4312-ac8a-e7885156105c/profile
The Amazon Smile program has been discontinued, but thank you to all those who participated.
To sign up for iGive, go to iGive.com and fill out the registration form. Click on “Choose Cause” and then “Search by Name.” Put in “Holy Rosary” (including the St. John simply confuses it), and then look for “The Community of Holy Rosary & St. John the Evangelist” on the list. Amount donated varies. You will get an email with different deals each week. With some stores, you will have to confirm that you want a donation to go to Holy Rosary St. John with your purchase.
