ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

There's a unique way you can support Chehaw Park when you shop through Amazon. It's part of a program called AmazonSmile.

Point five percent of your purchases will go directly to Chehaw Park.

The money will go right into the park's general fund to help with maintenance and zoo improvements.

"You just have to switch over to Amazon smile and choose Chehaw as the recipient and we just get a portion of those proceeds. It doesn't cost anything extra, it comes from amazon and it's just a way to help support us," said Morgan Burnette, Chehaw Park Director of Community Engagement.

Chehaw is not the only organization you can support through AmazonSmile.

Many other non-profits are involved as well.
