Dr. Martin Fielder receives packages from Amazon Smile/ HCHF
The Hopkins County Health Care (HCHC) Foundation is asking that friends of the Foundation and members of the Hopkins County community take time to share a smile. The smile in question is Amazon Smile. A program Amazon uses allows customers to designate a charitable organization as the recipient of a portion of the purchase price paid for specific items on their site.
The HCHC Foundation joined the program approximately six years ago. Since then, they’ve received over $700 thanks to individuals naming the HCHC Foundation their chosen recipient.
The program is easy to participate in and costs nothing to the Amazon customer. All a person needs to do is shop through smile.amazon.com instead of amazon.com. Once on smile.amazon.com or the app, be sure to denote the Hopkins County Health Care Foundation as the beneficiary. Next, go to Account & List, then Your Account dropdown. Click on Amazon Smile. From there, a charity, Hopkins County Health Care Foundation, may be designated or changed. If using the app, select Change Your Charity under Settings.
Purchase of certain products will generate a donation of 0.5% of the sale to the HCHC Foundation. That costs nothing extra to the Amazon customer but will mean the world to the Foundation, allowing it to do even more to promote healthcare initiatives in Hopkins County.
The Hopkins County Health Care Foundation is celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2022. It is an IRS-designated 501 (c) 3 non-profit. For more information or to donate, contact Kayla Price, Executive Director, at 903-438-4799 or email@example.com.
