New Ways to Support Food For Thought
By signing up for eScrip and Amazon Smile, you could be supporting Food For Thought while you shop. Local businesses and online retailers will donate up to 5% of your purchase price to Food For Thought - at no extra cost to you!
An exciting new way to support Food For Thought while you shop is through Amazon Smile. By selecting us as your charity of choice, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your Amazon purchases to Food For Thought. To register, visit smile.amazon.com, then sign in to your Amazon account. You will be able to choose a nonprofit (we’re listed as Food For Thought: Forestville, CA).
Then, as you shop on Amazon, each item will note whether it is eligible for Amazon Smile – and most items are!
Many local businesses are using eScrip, a program in which up to 5% of your purchases get donated to the nonprofit of your choice. Taking a few minutes to sign up now will mean that Food For Thought will continue to receive donations as you shop – at no cost to you!
To get started, go to eScrip.com and start an account. You can enter your credit or debit card information into their secure system so that donations are made automatically when you shop at participating retailers, including Fircrest, Food 4 Less, Glen Ellen Market, and Sonoma Market.
And, it’s not just grocery stores that participate. By registering your credit or debit card, donations will also be made when you make purchases with companies such as American Airlines, Big O Tires, and Sierra Trading Post.
For other stores, such as Safeway, you can tie your account to your existing Safeway Club Card through the online system.
At a few local stores, such as Molsberry Market, Petaluma Market, and Oliver’s, you must also register for a community card at the store, and then you can tie it to your account online as well. Just ask for a form next time you’re in one of these stores. You’ll need to show the card each time you check out to make sure the money goes to the right place.
When you register, please make sure to select Food For Thought – Sonoma County AIDS Food Bank as your nonprofit of choice!
