Tradition V - "Each group has but one primary purpose - to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers."

In Southeastern Pennsylvania Intergroup Association's five county area there are many opportunities to carry the A.A. message to treatment facilities. Many sick and suffering alcoholics spending time in these facilities have gotten that first message of hope through volunteers speaking and chairing meetings at these facilities.

When your Intergroup rep announces commitments at your group, put up your hand and volunteer. It will keep that gratitude in high gear.

Also, groups can adopt an institution. By adopting an institution, your group members will have weekly contact with those who still suffer from active alcoholism.

Intergroup reps - please inform your groups!

For more information, please call Intergroup (215) 923-7900 or attend our meeting on the 3rd Monday of the month at 7:00pm at the Intergroup office, 444 No. 3rd Street, Suite #3E, in Philadelphia.
