Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service.

2. Then go to Amazon smile.
3. In the charity locator, enter "friends of PS 163". This will direct a percentage of purchases to our school.

Look for products with the pink "Box Tops for Education" logo including cereal, Ziploc bags & containers, clothes, etc. (click here for a full list of participating products.) Clip the logos from the packaging and drop them in the bin in the School Lobby (remember to include your child's name, grade & class when submitting.)
Each BoxTop is worth 10 cents. The more you collect the more we earn! Look out announcements on BoxTop milestones throughout the year. The class with the highest submissions earns prizes.
