Amazon surprises hundreds of charities with donations

From The Amazon Blog:

Amazon is surprising hundreds of charities—which support causes from STEM education, to homelessness, hunger, disaster relief, youth organizations, sustainability and more—across the U.S. by fulfilling products requested on each of their AmazonSmile Charity Lists. Amazon is donating hundreds of thousands of items to charities from their AmazonSmile Charity Lists through the end of the year to ensure they have what they need to round out the holiday season, and to get a jump start on the new year.

Some of the total items donated include:

  • More than 5,000 blankets, sheets, and pillows.
  • More than 30,000 toys and educational items for kids.
  • More than 40,000 pairs of socks, outerwear, pajamas, pairs of shoes, and other apparel items.
  • More than 60,000 food and pantry items from water to canned goods.

. . . .

“Amazon’s generosity will allow us to meet a portion of the great needs of people experiencing homelessness on our borough’s streets, in the ferry terminal, in our churches, and especially the children and families in our Staten Island shelter,” said Reverend Terry Troia, President and CEO of Project Hospitality. “We are grateful to have a compassionate partner in the midst of great human need.”

  1. How dare they! Further proof that Amazon is an evil overbearing…. wait, charity? Um, never mind.

    You just KNOW someone, somewhere is thinking that there’s some plot behind this.

  2. Very nice, but I’ll be really impressed when they donate 50 packs of adult diapers to each of their warehouse workers, so they no longer need to buy their own.
