To our Manchester Library supporters:
Your shopping choices could benefit the library!
Two companies have recently begun to offer “community rewards” programs. They will make a donation to the Friends of the Manchester Library (or any nonprofit you choose) based on the amount of your purchases. To make your purchases count, you must first tell each company which nonprofit you want them to support, and we hope you’ll choose the library!

Here’s the fine print:
Participating does NOT increase your prices when you shop or cost you anything
It does not affect any other rewards you might earn (fuel points, etc.)
You can change which nonprofit you want to support at any time

The two programs differ a little, so here are those details:

Fred Meyer has an amount set aside for charitable donations each quarter; the percentage of that amount to go to each charity is now determined through this rewards program.

To sign up for the Fred Meyer program:
Get a Fred Meyer Rewards Card (no cost)
Sign up your rewards card on their web site:
www.fredmeyer.com/communityrewards
Update your reward card profile to support FOML (Group # 93267)

AmazonSmile: You shop. Amazon gives.
Amazon will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to the charity you choose.

To sign up for the Amazon Smile program:
Go to www.smile.amazon.com
Login to your Amazon account
Select your charity (Friends of the Manchester Library, we hope). There’s more than one with that name, so be sure to pick the one in Washington.
Whenever you shop on Amazon, be SURE to start from www.smile.amazon.com.  The page will display a banner showing “Supporting Friends of the Manchester Library”, so you’ll know you’re recording your purchase to support the library.

FOML has already received donations from both companies for the first few months of 2014, and we are excited about the possibilities! Please consider this no-cost method of supporting the Manchester Library.
