Hopkins County Health Care Foundation Asks For A Smile

The Hopkins County Health Care (HCHC) Foundation is asking that friends of the Foundation and members of the Hopkins County community take time to share a smile. The smile in question is Amazon Smile, which is a program Amazon uses to allow customers to designate a charitable organization as the recipient of a portion of the purchase price paid for certain items on their site.

Dr. Martin Fielder, Hopkins County Health Care Foundation Board member and Chief Medical Officer of CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs, dons a smile as he opens a recent delivery from Amazon.

The HCHC Foundation joined the program approximately six years ago. Since then over $700 has been received thanks to individuals naming HCHC Foundation as their chosen recipient. The program is easy to participate in and costs nothing to the Amazon customer.

All a person needs to do is shop through smile.amazon.com instead of amazon.com. Once on smile.amazon.com or the app, be sure to denote the Hopkins County Health Care Foundation as the beneficiary. Go to Account & Lists then Your Account dropdown. Click on Amazon Smile. From there a charity (Hopkins County Health Care Foundation, please) may be designated or changed. If using the app, select Change Your Charity under Settings.

Purchase of certain products will generate a donation of 0.5% of the sale to the HCHC Foundation. That costs nothing extra to the Amazon customer but will mean the world to the Foundation, allowing it to do even more to promote health care initiatives in Hopkins County.

The Hopkins County Health Care Foundation is celebrating its 25th Anniversary during 2022. It is an IRS designated 501 (c) 3 non-profit. For more information or to donate, contact Kayla Price, Executive Director, at 903-438-4799 or [email protected].
