SARA Supporting 5 Loves this Holiday:

5 Loaves Christmas Assistance Program is doing the following:

  • Helping to provide a Christmas for 466 Kids this year

  • Their goal is two $25 gift cards per kid which comes out to 932 gift cards from either WalMart or Target

  • The deadline is December 5th so we have enough time to sort and distribute. However, if you have something later we can make arrangements.

  • We already have donations from 35 business to fill stockings for every kid as well.

There are several methods to get these to us and we can arrange pickup or drop-off:

  • You can contact board member Kimberlee Powell at 214-458-5408 / to around a pickup or drop-off of gift cards

  • You can also donate electronically using the Donate button on the top right of However, please send Kimberlee a message as the notes designating that this is for Christmas is sporadically working.

ARRL Affiliated Club: As an ARRL Affiliated Club, the club receives a commission for every new ARRL membership and renewal we submit to ARRL Headquarters and get to retain a portion of the dues for each regular membership submitted.

  • Clubs retain $15 for each new membership OR lapsed membership (of two years or more). A NEW MEMBER is defined as any individual who has never been a member of ARRL or any individual who has not retained a membership for two or more calendar years prior to the application submission.

  • Clubs retain $2 for each renewal. A RENEWING MEMBER can renew at anytime, even before their current membership term expires.

Once downloaded, complete the form and get it to the club Treasurer along with a check made out to 'Sachse Amateur Radio Association' and we will submit your ARRL membership application/renewal to ARRL Headquarters.
