Manna Cards provide a way to support the activity of our Mission Committee at no actual cost to you as a member of CUCC. It is a simple process. You purchase gift cards from the Mission Committee’s Manna team and the Mission Committee receives a discount or rebate based on the cards you buy. But you receive full value for each card you purchase. There are a ton of merchants, and cards are sold at various price points. To see the current list download CUCC’s Manna Form . If you pay $10 for a $10 gift card, when you take it to the merchant you pay for a $10 purchase with the card. The discount or rebate is paid by the merchant and not by you! The Mission Committee can then use the funds to support a myriad of causes, often those that come up mid-year and were not included in the original budget for missions. It’s a good deal all the way around. In 2014, the net proceeds of Manna Card sales was $4456, and increase of more than $650 over the prior year. Thanks to all who made this possible!
Manna Cards may be used for your every day shopping, for special purchases, and as great gifts on birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, graduations, as report card rewards or just because! We have cards for grocery stores, department stores, pharmacies, clothing stores, hardware and home improvement stores, travel, gasoline service stations, online services and many, many more!

Here are a few examples of how you can work some Missions Magic with Manna:
If your family spends only $50 a week at Jewel Foods, and you use Manna Cards for your purchases, in a year, CUCC would earn $104. If 50 families did the same thing, CUCC would earn $5200 in a year!
Or, if you spend $300 a month for gasoline at Shell, in one year we would earn $108. If 25 families did the same thing, earn $2700 that year.
Or, if at Christmas, you purchased a $25 Options gift card that is good at Old Navy, GAP, and Banana Republic for each of your 4 grand children we’d earn $14. If 20 Grandparents did the same thing, CUCC would earn $280.
One members who uses a Manna Card to purchase a $4.00 Starbuck’s drink on the way to work 5 days a week, would earn CUCC $72.80 in a year
See how easy that is?

All Manna Card orders must be paid when placed, by check, or online, by an electronic charge to your checking account. Debit and credit cards are NOT accepted. Banks charge merchants for processing and that charge would diminish our rebate/discount. Ordering online requires pre-registration.
*For either of the electronic ordering methods, you first need an account number and password, provided by our Manna Team coordinators. Simply contact Carol Ludemann at firstname.lastname@example.org or Charlotte Surta at Surta3@comcast.net to get started. They will also give you a few simple directions, and answer any questions you might have about the program. The remaining instructions are online at the MannaOrders.net web site when you are ready to go.
