Happy New Year GFCA folks!


So that we may continue to reach out and help gluten intolerant people and educate the general public, I am writing to ask for GFCA 2011 donations*. Currently, we have $274.56 in deposits. Please see the 2010 GFCA Treasurer’s Report on the following page.


Here are some GFCA fund uses from 2010:


Please share in helping us to continue to reach gluten intolerant people in Arkansas and make a difference in all our lives. The recommended donation amount is $20.00.  Think of GFCA as your favorite charity! (The donation is tax deductible.) Please make payment to GFCA and send donations to:


Terri Murdoch

11 Berwyn Drive

Little Rock, AR  72227


Or, if you attend the January 17, 2011 meeting, you may donate at that time, or any time during the year.


Thank you,


Terri Murdoch

GFCA Treasurer


Also, please consider joining the national organization, Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG), of which GFCA is a local branch; member cost is $35.00. GIG acts on behalf of all gluten intolerant people in the United States. GIG was crucial in getting the Food Allergen and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) defined and passed. Their many works are extremely important and include the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO) for products, Gluten-Free Restaurant Awareness Program (GFRAP) for restaurants, and gluten free awareness in schools, hospitals, and nursing homes. Visit GIG’s website and learn more: www.gluten.net


Joining GIG** is a separate action from donating to GFCA.   GFCA does not receive funds from GIG.


*All donations are tax deductible.

**GIG membership is tax deductible.
