Church Women United
Julia Kendrick, transitional housing coordinator for the YWCA, will speak at the Church Women United program on Fri., Feb. 7. Her talk will include an update on services at the reestablished YWCA in Oak Ridge. The public is invited to attend the program in Columbus Hall, St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 327 Vermont Ave. Fellowship at 11:30 a.m., followed by a brief meeting at noon and the program thereafter.
St Stephen’s Outreach is now listed with the Kroger Community Rewards Program as a recipient charity. With the Kroger Community Rewards Program, the customer’s use of their Rewards Card accumulates an additional benefit to St Stephen’s if the customer chooses. Customers must access the website, and select St Stephen’s as their recipient organization. This is an entirely additional promotion and does not affect the “fuel points” promotion.
Please sign up. We now have 17 people/households signed on and have already received a first check in the amount of $235! Here is what you need to know:
1. Access www.krogercommunityrewards.com and either sign on, if you have before, or create an online presence by putting in your email name and making up a password.
2. If you already have a “Plus Shoppers Card”, go to the bottom of the screen and enter St Stephen’s as your selected charity, NPO number 75653.
3. If you do not have a “Plus Shoppers Card”, you may generate one on the website using your phone number as an identifier, then select St Stephen’s for Community Rewards.
4. Now whenever you shop at Kroger and either swipe your “Shopper Card” or enter your phone number as the “alternate ID”, St Stephen’s Outreach gets a contribution based on the amount of the purchase.
Rewards from all of St Stephen’s friends are accumulated quarterly. So we need lots of friends! Please sign up.
HAVE AN EVENT OR HAPPENING COMING UP? If you have a coming event that you would like to have added to this listing, please send your information to firstname.lastname@example.org
On every first and fifth Sunday, the loose offering is designated for the Rector’s Discretionary Fund.
