This Holiday season (and all
year-around!) when you are making your on-line purchases from
Amazon.com, please consider donating to the Advent House
through their AmazonSmile Foundation program. At
the end of your purchase, Amazon.com customers may select a
charitable organization (Perinton Ecumenical Ministries dba Advent
House) and then the AmazonSmile Foundation donates to the Advent
House (the foundation covers the administrative expenses).
Thanks for considering
Advent House for this corporate giving program!
“Although it was a hard
journey for both Dad and our family, the environment of caring,
calm acceptance and quiet of competence you created at Advent
House eased our transition and gave us comfort and courage.”
