You Shop – Amazon Gives.
If you shop on Amazon, then you know that primeday starts July 10, when the retail giant offers all kinds of deals. Why do we care? Because you can make your Amazon purchases count toward the Y. Just sign in to Smile.Amazon.com and select the Y as the charity of your choice. Every little purchase adds up and we do get checks that help fund our our financial assistance program. That’s how we make sure all families can access our childcare, fitness and other programs, regardless of income status. Last year, we provided over $215,000 in scholarships to lower-income families, with over $103,000 for childcare services alone. So if you have some Amazon shopping to do, please keep us in mind!
