New Link to Support the Verona Senior Center by shopping at Amazon.


Click here to support the Senior Center via “Amazon Smiles”.


Our unique charity link:


This link will take you directly to in support of our organization so you won’t have to search for our charity among almost a million other organizations. Use this link in all your Amazon Smile shopping. It’s the easiest way for you to find and support our charity.  This link takes you directly to the Amazon portal for Verona Senior Center so any qualified Amazon purchase made through this portal will create a donation to the Verona Senior Center.


More information about AmazonSmile.   People shopping must understand the following:


The AmazonSmile program offers customers the benefit of making a donation to your favorite charity. We’re able to provide this benefit to you when you choose to start your shopping at or with AmazonSmile turned ON in the Amazon Shopping app on your mobile phone, in part because we expect AmazonSmile to grow primarily through word of mouth instead of paid advertising—and this enables us to fund donations to our customers’ favorite organizations.

How can we improve our Senior Center as a place of interest, fun, learning and caring?


We want the people who enjoy our center and those of the Verona community to be a part of its future, so we are inviting you to bring your excitement, enthusiasm and ideas as a member of  Friends of Verona Senior Center Board of Directors!!
