Use Amazon to donate to YMCA Project

Posted on Wednesday, November 16, 2016 at 12:06 pm

With the recent release of Black Friday ads, Christmas shopping is at the forefront of many people’s thoughts. If you utilize for online Christmas shopping, please remember to choose, so a donation will be made to the Eastern Missouri Family YMCA Project.
By simply going to, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. This is a donation made by Amazon, not the shopper.
To start, go to and log-in with your regular sign-in email and password. On your first visit you will select a charitable organization. Please search for Vandalia Recreation Corporation, Vandalia, Mo. Once the charitable organization is selected, Amazon Smile will remember the organization for future purchases.
A direct link to AmazonSmile with the Vandalia Recreation Corporation pre-selected can be found on the YMCA Project Facebook page. Please search “YMCA Project Vandalia” to locate the project page.
Thank you to individuals or businesses who have already switched to AmazonSmile. The amount of funds already received from Amazon varies from month to month, but it all adds to the project’s overall goal.
A small change can bring additional funds to the YMCA project at NO COST. Please change your Amazon shopping bookmark or favorite to and help us reach our goal!
