copying, handling money, selling books, literature, gifts, making change, running
credit card machine, etc. These are regular shifts, done once a week.

If you know anyone or have a sponsee or you can cover these times slots,
that would be great.

BRIDGE THE GAP PROGRAM:
Be a temporary contact between the treatment facilities and outside AA.
This is a commitment to help the newcomers integrate into A.A., when they
get home from treatment. You would meet them at their first meeting
(hopefully the day or day after they get out). Introduce them to people in
the program, help them get numbers, a meeting schedule, literature etc. Stay
in touch, maybe meet them at a second or third meeting. This is such a great
way to do service work and help a newcomer by guiding him or her through the
first week or so!

Central Office Could Really Use Some Financial Support
So we can give away what was so freely given to us...
It's a good way to help the Central Office with your 12
step work. We can support with financial aid when we
cannot give our time. If you would like to contribute in
this way, call the Central Office, e-mail the office manager,
Stop by & pick up a "5er's form". Thanks in advance.
"The basket"... Something to consider.
SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT
* Less than 44% of groups contribute to the General Service Office.
* Costs of Services provided by G.S.O. are $6.32 per member per year
* A.A. literature sales account for 56% of G.S.O.'s income.
* What is the value of your sobriety?
* Does your group know that contributions may be made online at AA.org?
* Give until it feels good.
The Seventh Tradition states: "Every A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting,
declining outside contributions."
While contributions cover each group's rent and other expenses, the Seventh Tradition
is essential at every level of A.A. service. It is both a privilege and a responsibility for
groups and members to ensure that not only their group, but also their Intergroup/central
office, local services, district, area, and the General Service Office remain self-supporting.
This keeps A.A. free of outside influences that might divert us from our primary purpose -
to help the alcoholic who still suffers.
The amount of our contribution is secondary to the spiritual connection that unites all groups
around the world.
