Holiday Giving Made Easy
The holiday season is nearly upon us, and we’d like you to know how you can generously give to CCF through these three great programs:
The CASA Holiday Gift Drive collects gifts for young people in the foster care system in Orange County, CA. Typically, this drive allows for Carrington Associates to purchase these physical gifts. This year, due to the circumstances of the pandemic, the CASA Holiday Gift Drive will consist of Amazon Gift Cards only. Associates can sign up to purchase a gift card to send to a deserving child. And here’s some great news: You don’t have to be an Orange County Associate to participate, because CASA is a nationwide program. We’ll get you a link to the available snowflakes soon, and you can purchase your snowflake online. Signups will be available soon, so look for an email from CCF in the near future.
The AmazonSmile program is a great way to give to the Carrington Charitable Foundation every time you shop with Amazon. When you make eligible purchases through this program, you will help to make a difference for the organizations and people that CCF supports.
If you've never used AmazonSmile, the first time you select the link you'll be directed to smile.amazon.com and asked if you want to support Carrington Charitable Foundation. Once you select CCF, 0.5% of the price of all your eligible purchases will benefit us. It's important to go to smile.amazon.com instead of www.amazon.com when you shop, as only purchases made through this program are eligible for donations.

You can now support CCF on iPhone & Android phones. Check out this super short how-to article for how to set it up! Thank you for considering using Amazon Smile to support CCF!
Toys for Tots & More
The U.S. Marines Toys for Tots Program has been delivering a message of hope – and lots of terrific toys – to less fortunate youngsters since 1947. If you want participate in Toys for Tots at your Carrington location, email Shelly Lawrence, and we will get you set up for this holiday season. And if there is another holiday giving effort you want to participate in or share with other Associates, contact Shelly and we will help you set it up.
