Dear Valued Butter Paddle Customers

In order to comply with the latest Shelter in Place ordered by Santa Clara County, The Butter Paddle will remain closed until the order is lifted. The safety and well-being of our store volunteers and customers are the highest priority to us, and we hope this shutdown will result in a quicker resolution to this health crisis. Once the Shelter in Place is lifted, we look forward to seeing you back at The Butter Paddle where you can take advantage of the wonderful products and excellent service provided by our EMQ Auxiliary members.

We appreciate your years of support, and now, more than ever, appreciate any donations to the EMQ Auxiliary, so we can continue to support Uplift Family Services.

The donation link is at the bottom of the Home Page at

Good wishes from the more than 80 volunteers of EMQ Auxiliary for your and your family's good health and safety.
