Ongoing throughout the year: An easy way to support Townsend Harris
 
As many of us are now shopping online regularly even for basic necessities, you can donate to the PTA simply by shopping on Amazon.com without any extra cost to you. Here's how to do so:
  • The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible smile.amazon.com purchases.
  • Tens of millions of products are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation."
  • Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible to generate donations.
  • After you place a qualifying smile.amazon.com order, it may take several days for the amount you have generated to update.
  • Do NOT log into your regular Amazon.com account or the mobile app.
    Instead, you MUST log into Townsend Harris High School's special link to AmazonSmile. Or click on the banner below.
  • The name of our AmazonSmile organization is "Parent Teacher Association of Townsend Harris High School."
