Support The Arc This Holiday Season!

We know this year has been difficult for everyone, but we are hoping this holiday season brings more cheer than ever before. So, ‘Tis the holiday season and the best time of the year to donate! 

Shop this season at smile.amazon.com and enjoy the same Amazon products, prices, and Prime benefits, and AmazonSmile will donate to your favorite charity – The Arc of Southington!

We don’t think anyone quite offers Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals like Amazon, so make sure you don’t miss out on those shopping days either.

We encourage you to shop through AmazonSmile, because every purchase you make there, instantly helps us. We are so grateful that Amazon continues to give back, and we are so grateful for all of you, too!

Here’s how it works:
1. Visit: https://smile.amazon.com/

2. Select The Arc of Southington as your charitable organization.
3. Now shop away (just like normal).
4. At checkout, Amazon will donate 0.5% of all of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to The Arc of Southington.

Happy Shopping & Happy Holidays!

Thank you as always, from all of us at The Arc of Southington!
