  • Grocery Gift Cards:Turn Your Shopping Into Cash! Grocery store gift cards are available for four different stores. We earn 6% from Hannaford, Stop & Shop, and Donelan’s, and 3% from Whole Foods. This leads to thousands of dollars for our programs, with no extra out-of-pocket money from you. Contact Toby Sedgwick, to sign up for the monthly program or to receive cards as needed, and then start shopping and giving back to Congregation Shalom at the same time. You can have grocery cards sent to college students too!
