Hannaford Cards

grocery-store-shopping.jpgYou too can support our church with your Hannaford shopping it’sts easier than ever! Join with the 25 church families already participating in this great program. Hannaford donates 5% of whatever you put on your Hannaford cash card (and you still have 100% of what you put on the card). Do you have more than one family member who shops at Hannaford? They can EACH have a card!

We order and reload Hannaford cards TWICE a month – 1st Sunday AND 3rd Sunday of each month! We have Hannaford cards right here on hand to get you started! See Dorothy on Sundays or email office@uuyarmouth.org and your inquiry will be forwarded to Dorothy.

checkbookChecks are made out to ‘First Universalist Church’ for the amount you would like to add to your card ($500 max balance per card; no minimum). In the check memo area please put the last 5 digits of the card number (and your email address for first-time buyers). Checks can be mailed to the church or brought to the office by the Saturday before the order is due. Last year the church received over $2800 from Hannaford for the groceries we purchased; thanks to everyone who’s participating!

At First Universalist, we are famous for our hot soup and bread lunches. We have several tables where we sell crafts, baked goods, and jams, jellies, and pickles, and we host a Silent Auction and a popular Second Time Around sale.

Our church community makes and organizes the fair.  We welcome new items, suggestions, and help with lots of preparations as well as working the day of the fair.
