Shop locally at Fred Meyer? Set up FHFG as your charity of choice. Have a birthday or other event that people want to celebrate, but you don’t need gifts? Set up a Facebook fundraiser. Have lots of recyclables? Put them in an FHFG recycle bag and drop them off at your local BottleDrop. No need to go inside anymore!
Amazon Smile Program
The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. Amazon Smile utilizes your existing Amazon account.
To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. On your first visit, you will be prompted to select a charitable organization. Instead of choosing one of their featured charities, go to “Pick your own charitable organization,” type in: Friends of Historic Forest Grove and click [Search].
And then every eligible purchase you make on AmazonSmile will result in a donation to FHFG. As the Barefoot Contessa would say, how easy is that?
