Cyd’s Crew for Charity

Did you know every time you shop in Cyd’s + toss your extra change in the jars by the registers in our Market or Cafe, or you leave a tip on the table for the Cafe servers, 100% of our tips go to a charity of our staff’s choice?

Have a charity you’d like to suggest to the Cyd’s Crew for a monthly donation? We’d love to hear about it! We do try our best to keep our donations close to home- of course there are times when places further away get our monthly vote, like Haiti’s earthquake relief effort, but we’re always open to suggestions!
