NOTE: Amazon announced that the AmazonSmile Program will be winding down by February 20, 2023. We are able to accrue additional donations until the program officially closes in February. Thanks to all that participated over the last few years by giving to UMC Monroe!
From Amazon 01.18.23: “We are writing to let you know that we plan to wind down AmazonSmile by February 20, 2023. We will continue to pursue and invest in other areas where we’ve seen we can make meaningful change — from building affordable housing to providing access to computer science education for students in underserved communities to using our logistics infrastructure and technology to assist broad communities impacted by natural disasters.”
