Just in time for the gift giving season, Old Colony Elder Services (OCES), the non-profit agency proudly serving older adults and individuals with disabilities throughout greater Plymouth County and surrounding communities, has become part of the AmazonSmile program.
OCES is a registered charitable organization at AmazonSmile. Now, consumers can support OCES during the holiday season and beyond simply by shopping at smile.amazon.com and selecting “Old Colony Elder Services” after signing in. A portion of the purchase price (0.5 percent of eligible AmazonSmile purchases) is automatically donated to OCES. Consumers may shop AmazonSmile, which has the same products, prices and services as Amazon, knowing that a portion of their purchase will help support OCES, and that there is no additional cost to them or to OCES.

“Now, consumers can easily support OCES’ Emergency Fund, Nutrition and other programs each time they shop with just a few clicks,” noted Diana DiGiorgi, OCES’ Executive Director.
