We have two great, easy opportunities to help raise money for our team!

Here’s how:

****Link your Amazon account to the AmazonSmile foundation, then shop on Amazon by using the AmazonSmile site  This site has all the same products and uses your existing Amazon account.  Also, if you are an Amazon Prime member, you will still enjoy all the benefits of Prime, and the process will work the same as if you were shopping at

****Link your Fry’s shoppers card to the Community Rewards program, then shop at Fry’s as usual and use your V.I.P. rewards card when checking out!  NOTE:  (Even if you have previously enrolled and linked your Fry’s account to the GMGSO, you must re-enroll every year to continue to be linked.)

A portion of the money spent on purchases at both of these locations will be donated to our team!  (If you are new to shopping at Fry’s and/or Amazon, you will have an opportunity to create an account during the enrollment/linking process.)

Encourage family and friends to enroll as well!!

**Please take a couple of minutes to enroll in both programs right now.**
