AmazonSmile is a program that lets you donate to the Community Action Center as you shop!
Simply shop on smile.amazon.com rather than amazon.com, and the Amazon Smile Foundation will donate .5% of your purchase directly to the Community Action Center.
For a shopper, prices and products are identical to Amazon.com. Think about it, you can shop at the same amazing prices that Amazon has to offer AND Amazon will donate .5% of your purchase at no extra charge to you!
Savings and philanthropy are always a good mix during this holiday savings, especially when it’s money you already planned to spend!
For questions, see http://smile.amazon.com for more information, or call the CAC at 507-664-3550.
