Do you shop on Amazon.com? Would you like a percentage of your purchase price to help needy youngsters in our area? Then AmazonSmile Foundation is for you!
When you are ready to shop, go to smile.amazon.com. Millions of items are eligible for a five percent donation to SaddleBrooke Community Outreach and are marked “eligible” on the product detail pages. All your current accounts remain the same, which includes shopping cart, wish list, registries and other account settings.
AmazonSmile donates the five percent on the purchase price, minus whatever rebates you might have, and does not include shipping, handling, gift wrapping fees, taxes or service charges. Because Amazon is making the donation to SBCO, you cannot claim it as a tax deduction. Watch for special promotions that might increase the amount you “gift” to SBCO.
SBCO treasurer Anne Everett has registered Community Outreach with AmazonSmile, and you are ready to shop while aiding youngsters in our neighboring communities! SBCO operates Kids’ Closet, offers education opportunities and supports Tri Community Food Bank. For more information about this 100% volunteer organization that is a 501(c)(3) charity, go to our website: www.community-outreach.org.
