District 26 – Contributions Mailing Address

The District 26 Webpage on the Area 53’s website now includes the mailing address for District 26 group contributions.  Further, there is a convenient piece titled Self-Support:  Where Money and Spirituality Mix that has been updated with the mailing addresses for each of the AA entities.  This might be a helpful resource for new group treasurers.  Of course, the percentages listed were taken from the AA pamphlet with the same name – your group should decide what actual percentages are appropriate for you.  AA appreciates all you do in support of our fellowship.

In Humble Service,
Mike M, DCM, District 26
