Did you know that you can support the JCC while you shop Amazon without any additional time or cost to you? You’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of your purchases to the York JCC. To support the JCC by shopping at AmazonSmile, simply log in to (or create) your Amazon.com account at smile.amazon.com and select “Jewish Community Centre of York Pennsylvania” as your charitable organization before you begin shopping. Amazon will remember your selection so your future eligible purchases made at AmazonSmile will also result in donations to the JCC. (You can also add or change your charitable organization designation at any time by logging into Amazon.com, going to “Your Account” and clicking on “Change Your Charity”.)
ECE Family Dinner Fundraisers are held throughout the year at various local restaurants as part of our effort to build “family togetherness” and “community” within our school and community. These events give families an opportunity to get together outside of ECE hours. Funds earned through ECE Family Dinner Fundraisers are used to support ECE Family Group events and projects such as Family Play Dates, Parent Book Club, Teacher Appreciation, etc. Information regarding ECE Family Dinner Fundraisers will be posted as events are scheduled.
The ECE Family Group understands that families are busy and not everyone has the time, means or interest to participate in some fundraisers. For these reasons, the ECE Family Group does not choose any fundraisers that involve our families other than as volunteers for fundraiser support occasionally when needed. The ECE Family Group also makes all efforts to offer fundraisers that promote family togetherness and building community and/ or fundraisers that will benefit the ECE from things families already do (ECE Family Dinner Fundraisers, etc.). The purpose of the ECE Family Group is to support our families and staff in all that we do and fundraising allows us to fund “extras” such as special activities and projects as well as provide opportunities to promote our group goals. ECE families are never required to participate in any ECE Family Group projects or activities, including fundraisers, but we hope that everyone will support our fundraising efforts if/ when convenient.
