Extended Grace operates a fair trade/social cause store called Just Goods. Just Goods sells traditional fair trade items, as well as hand-crafted items made by inmates involved with Humanity for Prisoners and by students enrolled in CBI. CBI is a program of the Intermediate School District that provides Community Based Instruction for 18 to 26-years-with disabilities. It also serves Aldea coffee, Leppink's donuts, Grand Finale' cookies and tea from Lucky Tea Cafe. A volunteer would provide customer service to all guests, maintain store throughout their shift (restocking beverage cooler, cleaning tables, etc.), complete transactions using a register, serving tea, coffee, cookies or donuts and misc. tasks that one is willing to help with.
