ORDER ONLINE & SHIP DIRECTLY TO CP
Amazon is a popular and effective way for us to receive in-kind donations. If you use Amazon, we have a couple tips for the next time you buy.
Adding ‘smile’ brings you to AmazonSmile. It is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. We hope you’ll choose Carpenter’s Place during the set-up process. The best part is, you can use your existing Amazon account. Super seamless!
