How to Become a Member

What is your response to the following?

  • Do you ever have a desire to help the needy in the community but don't because you lack the resources or the know-how to help?
  • Do you feel the need to give back to the community for the many blessings that you have in life?
  • Do you take pride in helping others less fortunate?
