Membership Drive 2015



2015 MEMBERSHIP DRIVE

Dues are due, and we'd love your help. Membership is a good deal for you and financially supports the center. While the center serves around 4,000 individuals, only about 300 to 400 actually become members. If 350 join it adds $12,250. If 1,500 join, it adds up to $52,500. Becoming a member lessens our fundraising needs and enables us to help many. Members receive discounts on many classes, trips, foot care and massage. Members are also invited to Member Only Events and receive the newsletters in print copy and delivered electronically. Thanks for your loyalty and support!

 

Membership is $35 for 2015. To become a Member stop by the upstairs reception desk, here on our website, or call 206-297-0403 to sign up.
