Thursday saw the following schools and nonprofit organizations represented: Anew Day, Animal Save, Bear Yuba Land Trust, Bitney College Preparatory High School, Camptonville Elementary School District, Captain John Oldham – NSDAR, Citizens for Choice, Habitat for Humanity-Nevada County, Hospice of the Foothills, Interfaith Food Minstry of Nevada County, Mount St. Mary’s School, Music in the Mountains, Nevada City School of the Arts, Partners in English Language Learning, Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum, Sammie’s Friends, Scooter’s Pals, Sierra Nevada Children’s Services, Sierra Roots, Sonshine Preschool, The Food Bank of Nevada County, Yuba River Charter School, Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nevada County.

In order to participate, shoppers simply visit their SPD Market, pick up a SPD Community Card, and register the card to support their local school or nonprofit. The cards are free, and can be registered at the store. Once registered, every time the SPD Community Card is provided at the checkout at either of the two SPD stores, 3 percent of the total grocery bill will be contributed to the customer’s designated school or nonprofit organization.
