CONCORD, N.H. — Did you know you can give in more than one way this holiday season while shopping for gifts online?
By using Amazon Smile, a portion of your purchase will be donated to the Better Together Community Grants Program. Simply click here and sign in with your regular Amazon account in order to give back while shopping.
The money raised from the grant program is given annually to half a dozen ROCs to help fund projects they have planned for their communities. The projects are often designed to meet safety and health needs, as well as bring together neighbors to solidify the already growing feeling of camaraderie.
In October 2010, the ROC leaders who attended the Community Leadership Institute in Louisville developed a community grants program idea that would both help a fellow ROC as well as engage new leadership in the resident corporation. The ROC USA® Board of Directors has included the grants in the budget since 2010.
