We are now participating in AmazonSmile, a program that donates 0.5% of eliigble Amazon purchases to qualified non-profits. If you are a regular or even just occasional Amazon shopper, log into your regular account and go to smile.amazon.com. Then in the search box, type in “Ridgewood Park United Methodist Church” as your selected charity (no abbreviations) and start shopping! RPUMC will now be associated with your account, but you need to start each shopping trip at smile.amazon.com, so you may want to bookmark the address to help you remember. For more information on the program, go to smile.amazon.com/about.
