Area Challenge

$7.40 on 7/4
AREA CHALLENGE

July 4th, 2018


In 2017 GSO provided services to 1,381,954 A.A. members at a cost of $10,222,650. That's $7.40 per A.A. member for the whole year! If every member contributed $7.40 once, it would support all of the services GSO provides to all groups, for one year!


Here's how the challenge works:
Groups pass a Special Basket or Can in addition to the regular 7th Tradition. Each member contributes $7.40 (or round it up to $8 to help those who can't). Individual members can send money or contribute online any time.  Remember this is in addition to what you put in the basket to support your group.

$7.40 on 7/4 --- easy to remember!

On July 4th each group collects the contents of the can or basket and writes a check (or money order) ** for the amount contributed. Be sure to enclose the form with your payment to get credit for your contribution.
Send your share.
Meet the Challenge!

The Home Away From Home Group

The Home Away From Home Group needs volunteers!

We meet Thursdays, 7-8:30 pm, and Sundays, 2-3:30 pm, in Deer Ridge Correctional Institute (DRCI), near Madras OR.

DRCI is a men’s minimum security prison. We urgently need AAs -- women or men -- to make firm, sustained commitments to help maintain this corrections meeting.

Thursday meetings are literature based. The 3rd Sunday is a speaker/ discussion meeting. Other Sundays are open discussion meetings. Attendance ranges between ~12-40 inmates of varying lengths of sobriety.  AAs interested in supporting the Home Away From Home Group must first attend as a “visitor” before beginning the process of becoming a “credentialed volunteer.” Visitor clearance usually takes 1 week; completing all requirements for volunteer credentials can usually be done within 3-6 months of 1st visit.
