Coffee Mug Fundraiser

Coffee mugs are being sold for a church fundraiser. The mugs come in two colors (white and maroon) with both Russian and English text on either side. Each mug is $10.00 including sales tax. Please stop by the church kiosk to purchase your mug! If you are unable to visit in person but would like to support our church, please email for shipping and payment options.


This is how the ShopWithScrip fundraiser program works: Our parish purchases gift cards at a discount, sells them at face value, and then keeps the difference. For example, our parish purchases a $100 grocery store gift card at a discount for $95, a parishioner purchases the gift card for $100, and our parish keeps the $5 difference.

The gift cards can be purchased for gifts or everyday purchases such as groceries, gas, and restaurants. Click here for the current list of retailers and discounts offered.

If you would like to place an order, please see Alexandra Salaneck or Anastasia Salaneck, or email an order. Checks should be made payable to “St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church.” The orders are due the last Sunday of each month. The orders will be available for pick up at the church on the Sunday following the order due date.
