Donate to RBHS PTO while you shop with Amazon (It’s free money!)

You Shop.  Amazon donates to RBHS PTO.  What could be easier?

  • Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to RBHS PTO.
  • AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service.

Here’s how it works:

  1.  Go to .  Along the right hand side of the page, there is a search box to “Pick your own charitable donation.”  Enter “Riverside Brookfield High School Parent Teacher Organization” into the search box, and then select “Riverside Brookfield High School Parent Teacher Organization.” (It is not the first choice which will appear.)
  2. The next page will ask you to click on a check box to acknowledge your choice.
  3. When you are shopping with Amazon, you must START at for your purchases to be credited to RBHS PTO.

Easy peasy lemony squeezy!

  • Each survival kit contained the following items:  bottle of water, hat, gloves, socks, hand/toe warmers, lip balm, lotion, toothpaste/toothbrush, soap, shampoo/conditioner, several food/sweet items, blessing bag note
  • Approximately 19 student volunteers (promoted by Student Association and African American Empowerment Club), 4 adults
  • 55 kits were delivered to BEDS in LaGrange
  • 25 will go to PADS
  • 20 will go to local police (Riverside, North Riverside, Brookfield)

And finally, a big shout out to Christine Kawiecki and Michelle Udelson, the brilliant team who created, organized, and executed this event.  If you are interested in being part of the team for next year’s event, please contact Christine at
