AMAZON SMILE FOUNDATION

In the past year, those of you who designated Cokes Chapel UMC as your favorite charity through the Amazon Smile Foundation helped generate $37.09 in donations.  One person alone generated $27.87 of that amount.  If one person alone can generate that much, imagine how much more Cokes Chapel might receive if more of us signed up. 

If you shop on http://smile.amazon.com  and designate Cokes Chapel UMC as your designated charitable organization, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase price of eligible items to the church.  Don’t forget!  Sign up today.
