AmazonSmile Benefits Friends of the St. Clair River

Local non-profit and environmental protection and advocacy group Friends of the St. Clair River was the recipient of a surprise delivery this week and quite a large one at that. The group was notified in December by Amazon that the organization was one of a few hundred non-profits to have its Amazon wish list items purchased and this week the company delivered on its promise.

According to a December Amazon blog, the company had planned to “surprise hundreds of charities—which support causes from STEM education, to homelessness, hunger, disaster relief, and more—across the U.S. by fulfilling products requested on each of their AmazonSmile Charity Lists.” 

Friends of the St. Clair River says they will use the items to “deliver many watershed education programs with these supplies.”
