Recognizing that the recession has reduced donations to charitable organizations, Harbor Square Athletic Club in Edmonds is donating half all new-member fees in December to the Edmonds Food Bank and Edmonds Boys and Girls Club.
â€œA lot of people always join in December so we wanted to do our part as a community business and help our local organizations,â€ said Harbor Square Manager Jeff Bahm.
Here’s how it works: Anyone can join Harbor Square for $50 as a single and $25 for each additional family member during the month of December, and half of those fees will be evenly distributed between the two charities. As an added incentive, new members can write off the donated amount on their 2009 taxes.Â The clubâ€™s goal is to raise $1,000 for the programs and deliver it on Dec. 31.
