Order from Amazon

Purchase from Amazon and raise money for UUC – all at the same time – and with no extra costs to you.

Use our Amazon link to buy books, music, movies, electronics, and everything else that Amazon sells, and UUC will receive a cash rebate from Amazon of up to 10% of your purchase.

You pay the exact same cost, and the exact same shipping charge, including free shipping offers, that you would otherwise get from Amazon on your own. There is NO penalty to you!

The only catch is that YOU MUST PURCHASE BY ENTERING AMAZON THROUGH THE UUC LINK EVERY TIME YOU SHOP! Bookmark our page for easy shopping! Note: Please do NOT use this link for purchasing free e-books.

Click the Amazon button at top, a new browser window will open, and just shop as usual. The rebate will come to UUC automatically.

Amazon.com is not endorsed by Unitarian Universalist Congregation. The link to Amazon.com is provided here for your shopping convenience and to provide a creative way for our church to raise additional funds.  

Annual Goods and Services Auction

The annual Goods and Services Auction, held in the Fall of each year, is UUC’s biggest fundraiser of the year and always a night to remember. Each auction has a fun theme, and many come dressed in costume. We have both a silent auction and a live auction that include artwork, jewelry, fabulous dinners, vacation rentals, home repair, mystery nights, massages, and much more. For the hungry and thirsty, there is plenty of delicious food and drink. This is an adult-only event, and a separate children’s party and childcare for the very young are provided. Visit our auction website. Use the website to enter your donations by October 14 and to see the fabulous donations of others.

The auction for 2018 will be held on Saturday, October 27 from 5-9 PM with a Halloween theme. 

If you are interested in volunteering for the Auction Committee or for more information, please contact Linda Powers.

Selling on eBay

If you have possessions such as antiques, old jewelry, coins, shoes, photography equipment, etc. that you no longer use, consider donating them to the UUC for sale on eBay through our dealer, AJ’s Antiques and Art Gallery in Christiansburg. AJ will research the value of each item and post it on eBay as long as the value of the item exceeds $10. If the value is lower, items will be bundled to achieve that $10 cutoff. Once the item sells, you will receive a receipt for the amount that can be used as a charitable-gift tax deduction. Bring your items on a Sunday and leave them with our Administrator. For more information or to have items picked up at your home, contact Linda Powers.
