Thank you for your support!

Indirect Financial Giving
This is a simple and automatic way for you to support Torrington Christian Academy every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to Torrington Christian Academy!
How do I select a charitable organization to support when shopping on AmazonSmile?
If using a desktop, go to smile.amazon.com, and select “First Assembly of God Torrington*” to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation. Tip: Bookmark smile.amazon.com to your desktop’s browser!
If using the Amazon App on your smartphone or tablet, go to the menu (with the three dashed horizontal lines), select “Settings”, and then select “AmazonSmile”. Follow the prompts to “Turn on AmazonSmile” and select “First Assembly of God Torrington*” to receive the donations. (Note: Turning this on ensures that all future purchases made on your smartphone or tablet will go directly to TCA, unless you manually go into “Settings” and turn it off.)
* Torrington Christian Academy is under the tax umbrella of the First Assembly of God, Torrington. Thus, you will search for and select “First Assembly of God Torrington” as the “charitable donation”. 100% of all donations given through AmazonSmile will go to Torrington Christian Academy.

Over the holiday season from Thanksgiving – Christmas break, TCA will prompt shipping 1-2 times a week to ensure gift cards are in on time for the season. To ensure orders are in before the Christmas break, please put in any orders by Wednesday, December 14th.
*An email will go out to prompt for order pickups from TCA’s main office each time a batch shipment arrives.*
