WHERE DO WE GET OUR MONEY?
The primary source of our money used for services comes from the selling of Pecans during the Christmas season. We also accept donations from individuals during activities such as White Cane Fund Raiser in the month of May.
We raise money to be able to provide services to the community, and 100% of all money raised or profits from any sales are used to fund our service activities.
The money used to operate the Club comes from Club members through dues and fees. No money donated is used for this purpose.
