Here is how Shop-for-a-Case Works …
We found a way for you to
support our special work …
without it costing you a penny!!!
Shop-for-a-Cause is a new social media wave that allows you to shop at your favorite stores and buy the things you love … and the STORE will donate a portion toward our nonprofit. There are several ways to make this happen … and this Click to Give campaign can provide meaningful benefits to the giver and the recipient!
Visit our FundSponge.com page and click the “Shop Now” button … then click on your favorite retailer and make your purchase. The Orchard will receive a generous gift (and it will cost you $0!)
Visit our Amazon Smile page and register The Orchard Human Services, Inc. as your chosen nonprofit. Then shop at Amazon by going to the special nonprofit page Smile.Amazon.com to make all your same-cost purchases. Amazon will share a small portion of each purchase with The Orchard to support our awesome programs!
Do you shop at Kroger? Then please visit their Kroger Community Rewards page and choose The Orchard as your charity of choice …. and when you purchase groceries, gas, and anything else you need at any Kroger store, the Kroger company will donate a portion of your purchase to support our programs and services!

Humans are social beings. Each of us benefits from feelings of connection and sharing. It is part of our makeup. So when people get to support their family, friends, and community through charitable giving, it can give back huge rewards in personal satisfaction and add meaning to life.
Charity has been a part of the human experience since the beginning of time. Even our ancient ancestors noticed how supporting others in need can provide a sense of hope and higher purpose. The psychological benefits of these feelings can be significant.
Shop-for-a-Cause programs can be particularly helpful. They allow every person to participate in a meaningful charitable experience … without taking any money out of the household budget. This allows every single person who purchases items in stores or online to participate in charitable giving.
Individuals who are housebound may particularly benefit from Shop-for-a Cause giving. The inability to engage with others in a meaningful way can detract from quality of life and even contribute to depression. Shop-for-a-Cause is one small way that an individual who is unable to leave the house can still connect with others and benefit from the feeling of being part of a larger community.
Folks who are too busy to attend fundraisers or charity events may also find comfort in Shop-for-a-Cause giving. With just a few moments invested in going to the FundSponge.com page or other giving gateway, busy folks can simply shop as normal and still know they have made a difference in someone else’s life.
If you are a person who wants to give more – and see Shop-for-a-Cause as a potential option, then we invite you to share this page with others!
Thank you for your generous support of our programs.
