With Mother's Day this Sunday and Father's Day (June 21) and high school and college graduations just around the corner, there is a good chance that some of you will be buying gifts for these special occasions on Amazon.com.
If you do, there is an easy way to turn your Amazon purchase into much-needed funds to support HAC programs through the company's AmazonSmile program. The best part is that it costs you nothing.
All you have to do is use your Amazon or Amazon Prime account and log onto AmazonSmile (click this link) and designate Housing Assistance Corp. as your charity of choice. You can then shop for the same products - books, movies, jewelry, flowers and electronics - as you normally would.
Each time you make a purchase through AmazonSmile, a small portion (0.5%) of the purchase price is donated to HAC. It may not seem like much, but each donation adds up, allowing HAC to help a mother or father or family on Cape Cod get help when they need it most.
