GivingTuesday – December 1, 2020

This December we launched the GivingTuesday “Smart Tech for Smart Kids” initiative to raise funds to provide Interactive Technology Displays (often called smartboards) for St. Matthias School.  As we wind down the program, we are still accepting donations.  Thank you to everyone for your generosity!

Amazon Shopping Link

St. Matthias has launched an Amazon Associates program.  Every time you shop on Amazon, please start out by clicking on this link.  To learn more about how this works, visit our website’s Amazon page.

Gift Cards

Gift cards are sold online to benefit St. Matthias School.  There is no cost to you.  You receive the full amount on the gift card.  Please consider buying a Gift Card every time you shop. You may do this  right before you check out (whether in-person or online), using your phone and the “RaisingRight” app.  This is a wonderful way to support our school.

To purchase these cards at any time, please follow these steps:

  1. On your phone, download the “RaiseRight Fundraising” app from your App store, or go to on your computer.
  2. Click on “Join a Program”
  3. Enter the Enrollment Code for St. Matthias School: A68921F9388 
  4. Follow the prompts, skipping the Optional information.

Then every time you shop, purchase a gift card from RaiseRight and use it to checkout at the store — either online or in-person.   A small percentage of your purchases will be donated to SMS. This adds up.  If many people sign up and use RaiseRight whenever they shop or visit participating restaurants, we will be able to offset the subsidy that the parish provides the school every year.

If you have questions contact Melissa Rizzo at Thank you so much for continuing to support St. Matthias School!

Catholic Charities Boxes

The Catholic Charities Boxes are located in the back parking lot behind the church.  Parishioners are encouraged to donate gently used clothing and shoes to help the less fortunate.  Donations should be in fairly good condition, not be soiled or torn.  Small household items may also be donated. The items from the box are picked up on a regular basis.
