Although OA has no opinion on individuals precautions to be taken for the current public health crisis, please keep yourselves informed and use good judgment about your own personal health. If you are feeling unwell or if you are in a high risk group, please do NOT come to an in person meeting. Instead, please reach out to your network for support, and consider video or audio call-in options to a local meeting. Your Intergroup board is here to support you and may be able to help answer questions about tools for virtual attendance. The www.oa.org website is also an excellent tool for resources.

Many of our local meetings have gone virtual, making it very difficult for members to contribute cash to support their groups. In order to continue practicing being self-supporting, we would like to offer members a few options for making 7th tradition donations.
1. Members can donate directly to Suncoast Intergroup via check, Paypal or Venmo.
Checks can be mailed to:
PO Box 18594
Tampa, FL 33679
You do not need to have an account in order to make your contribution. Please be aware that Paypal charges a small fee for their services which will be deducted from the total amount.
To donate via Venmo, you will need to download the Venmo app on your smartphone and create a user account. Once you have an account established, touch the "Send money" icon (blue circle in the bottom right corner), then type in "Suncoast Intergroup". Our intergroup account should pop up, which you can link to and make your donation.
2. Members can donate to Region 8 or OA World Service.
In closing, please know that you are not alone, and that your recovery can flourish amidst the chaos and uncertainty of the times. Let us know how we can help - we are here for you.
Together we can,
OA Suncoast Secretary
