Easy Fundraising: AmazonSmile and Helping Hands
AmazonSmile: The Milford Historical Society is registered on AmazonSmile to receive donations from products purchased on Amazon. How does AmazonSmile work? Go to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com) and type in Milford Historical Society Trust UA as your charitable organization and we should be at the top of the list. Then, whenever you shop at AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the Milford Historical Society.
Helping Hands: Our fundraising efforts now include partnering with an organization called Helping Hands that will take our members’ donated household items and pay Milford Historical Society 12% of the selling price.
If you have items to donate, just take them to the store at 334 Boston Post Road, Orange. Drop-off is in the back parking lot. Be sure to tell the workers you want proceeds from the sale of your items to go the Society, and tell them that the MHS account number is 372. It may help if you write that number on the box or bag you are using. To learn more about the store, go to www.helpinghandsctfb.com. You can arrange the pick-up of furniture by calling (203) 782-4800.
