Have you ever needed to find answers about a local service or resource and not known where or how to find them? If your answer is yes, you are not alone. Many people have found themselves in that same predicament. Unfortunately, what you don't know can hurt you. For that reason, Proverbs 4:7 advises people to "get understanding." Basically, that's the inspiration for this forum. The Birmingham Community Hub has been created to help people find legitimate answers in a busy, fast-paced world. In a world where people are often bombarded with excess, this hub will hopefully allow it's users to trim the fat frequently associated with surfing the net and get right to the heart of matters with little distraction about fashion, gossip, or entertainment. Prayerfully, this will be an interactive forum where users can locate and exchange info in a faith-filled inspirational environment.

After you sign up, you take a picture of the bar code on your receipt with the app or type in your receipt number and within 72 hours receive the difference in savings on a Walmart e-gift card.
