    As many OCPA members may know, use of checks as a method of payment has fallen drastically in recent years.  At the same time, use of debit cards, PayPal and other forms of electronic payment has become the most common form of payment.  In keeping with this trend, at its October 2015 board meeting, OCPA adopted a new policy for payment of membership and meeting fees effective January 1, 2016.

    Forms of payment now accepted are:

    • Debit cards with Visa/MasterCard logo
    • Visa
    • MasterCard
    • American Express
    • Paypal

    Because electronic payments are generally safe and easy to use, the Board of Directors believe accepting electronic forms of payment will benefit OCPA members, including reducing wait time at meeting registration and protecting the financial health of OCPA.

    OCPA is partnering with Miracles for Kids, a nonprofit organization in Southern California to collect backpacks to benefit Miracles for Kids’ children in the Back-to-School Basket of Miracles Drive.  Collected backpacks will be filled with school supplies and healthy snacks and delivered to critically ill children and their siblings as they prepare for the upcoming school year.

    The Miracles for Kids backpack filling and distribution event will take place in August.  We are asking any member who would like to donate to bring a new, unused kids backpack for ages K-12 to any OCPA event by August 1st.  All those who donate will be entered into a drawing for a FREE OCPA MEMBERSHIP FOR 2016. For a tax write-off receipt, please provide proof of backpack purchase and Miracles for Kid’s will provide the donation receipt. Members can also make a direct donation to Miracles for Kids.  

    Closer to August OCPA will be posting a volunteer event to help fill the backpacks that are collected. Details to be provided at that time.

    About Miracles for Kids Miracles for Kids provides financial and other aid to low-income families throughout Southern California with children battling cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. These families struggle to maintain stability and meet basic financial obligations such as rent/mortgage, food, transportation, utilities, medicine and insurance. Miracles for Kids operates critically needed core financial aid, health care and food delivery programs, in addition to wellness programs aimed at the emotional stability of the entire family. OCPA is collecting backpacks for Miracles for Kids, a nonprofit organization serving children with life-threatening illnesses and the families that care for them. By operating programs that provide financial aid, basic needs and wellness to patients and their families, Miracles for Kids creates stability when families are crumbling from the financial and emotional devastation of fighting for their child's life.
