Maybe you’ve been donating to Literacy DuPage this way for awhile now. Thanks! But can we trouble you to double-check the connection? We recently updated our name in AmazonSmile (formerly Literacy Volunteers of America – DuPage, now Literacy DuPage).
If your Amazon Smile shows the old name, here’s what you can do:
  1. Temporarily select a different charitable organization.
  2. Re-select Literacy DuPage.
  3. This should update the information so you see our updated name.
