We have S.H.A.R.E.S. cards back in stock in the CBI office, so come by anytime during office hours or call (530-342-6146) to have one mailed to you. This is an easy way to help CBI while you shop at FoodMaxx, Lucky, or SaveMart. When you give the cashier the SHARES card (which has no information about you), CBI gets a small percentage of your purchase as a donation. Simply use the card and know you are doing a mitzvah.
