We can take donations!*  Your donations are essential in these formative days as various legal, printing, and other expenses come in, and especially as we enter into the formal "buying negotiations" and the mass of inspections, etc we'll be paying for.  Your donation, no matter how small (even $1 helps us buy essentials like printing for surveys and brochures, paper clips, etc) help grow the Co-op. You can call as at 530-626-7794 for more information on Member Loans and Donations to help make your Co-op grow!

Cans for the Co-op:  Bring your "CA CRV redemption" (California Redemption Value) recyclables (most often plastic, glass or aluminum bottled or canned water, soda, drinks, or small juice bottles) to Noah's Ark.  Leave them in the side yard by the dumpsters, and our volunteer will recycle them for cash. Cans for the co-op is currently netting about $70.00/mo. Only a very few people are participating so there is still untapped potential on this project. Don't be shy. And please do not drop off your general recyclables. CRV only! 
Be green, recycle, and help the Co-op! 

Change for the Co-op: Just drop your change in the canister  at the register at Noah's. If you own a business and would be willing to have a "Change for the Co-op" cannister in your store please let Melisa know and she will deliver one.


Melisa Clark, General Manager at Noah's Ark and Steering Committee members, will host informational meetings upstairs at Noah's Ark every second Saturday of the month between 4:00 - 6:00 pm. This is the place to come if you have questions or if you want to get involved in the Co-op, whether you're a member or not.
