Support EPH with Your Amazon.com Purchases
If you’re an Amazon shopper and would like to support EPH (Ecumenical Partnership for Housing) every time you shop at Amazon, you may be interested to know there’s an incredibly easy way to contribute to EPH just by shopping at Amazon Smile. It takes seconds to get set-up:
Go to smile.amazon.com. (If you have an Amazon account, it should recognize you on your laptop/PC and bring up your account when you go there.)
Following the prompts, choose the Ecumenical Partnership for Housing as the charity you want to support.
Then start shopping at smile.amazon.com just as you otherwise normally would at the regular Amazon site.
EPH will receive .5% from your purchases (minus taxes and shipping) every time you shop atsmile.amazon.com.
* The account you have with Amazon is the same account you would have with AmazonSmile.
* The cost of goods is the same on the Amazon site as it is on smile.amazon.com.
* Your Prime account, if you have one, remains the same.
In order for EPH to benefit from your purchases, you just need to shop at smile.amazon.com instead of the regular Amazon site every time you shop. Bookmark it to help you remember!
That’s all! Thank you for supporting a non-profit organization that provides a solution for homeless families who want to get back on their feet.

This community outreach center is open to the public and currently serves well over 100 families each month. The address is 127 N.

The Mission Committee decided to continue the school kit project. Back to school sales have started, so if you can help to fill bags with either 3 notebooks or a pack of loose leaf
lined paper (150 sheets or less), 6 unsharpened pencils, 1 pencil sharpener, 1 pencil eraser - 2” or larger, 12” ruler with metric, 1 box of crayons, 1 pair round tip scissors. A sign-up sheet will be passed in church on Sunday. Any number of an item or a complete kit will help children in need as they begin the school year. If you sew, perhaps you would be willing to help sew the cloth bag the items are placed in. Contact church office at (920) 434-1168 or email@example.com for the pattern.
Diane Goddard and Vicki Gooding delivered snacks to two area schools. Both staffs were so excited and appreciative!!! Even helped unload the cars. Thanks for generously helping support hungry children.
Brownies for the New Community Shelter
Due to the increase of about 200 meals served at the shelter, we will need to have at least 10 pans of brownies each month. Please sign up as the clipboard is passed. Brownies need to be at the church office by noon on the Thursday prior to the first Friday of each month; for example this month deliver brownies on Jan 31 for serving on Friday, February 1. Thanks for helping with this mission!
A monetary reserve kept in order to help those in need.
