The Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle is pleased to announce its participation in the new Amazon.com initiative entitled, AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile is a program that makes it easy for customers to support charitable organizations, like the Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle whenever they shop online. Customers who visit AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com) will find the exact same Amazon they know and love. They’ll enjoy the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience – with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to the Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle to support the programs offered to children ages 6 - 18.
“We’re offering customers a way to support charitable organizations around the country that’s simple and automatic,” said Ian McAllister, General Manager, AmazonSmile. “We think customers will love the opportunity to support their favorite charity without changing how they shop, and there’s no cap on how much Amazon will donate.”

Once the customer selects the Club, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from any eligible purchases through AmazonSmile from that point forward, whether a customer shops just once or once a day.
