AmazonSmile Charity Wish List

If you didn’t know, we have an AmazonSmile Charity Wish List. It has everything from books that did not make it to the cutting floor because we cannot buy the volume we had, to cleaning supplies, kid’s craft supplies and sensory toys.

You can get to the list either with our link: https://smile.amazon.com/…/16Q9B…/ref=smi_ext_lnk_lcl_cl or by searching AmazonSmile Charity Lists in your Account & Lists tab.
