The only purpose of the Northern California Hospital and Institution Committee of Alcoholics Anonymous is to carry A.A.'s message of recovery to confined alcoholics who can’t get to outside A.A. meetings.
The approved source of income for the Northern California Hospital and Institution Committee is from the Pink Can collections at A.A. meetings and activities, from other donations by A.A. groups, and from personal contributions by A.A. members. Funds collected in the Pink Cans are ‘dedicated funds’ given by group members specifically for the purpose of supporting the work of H&I and cannot be used for any other group purpose.
If it comes to the attention of the committee that an A.A. group is not using the Pink Cans for the above purpose, a member of the committee should contact that group and encourage them to do so.
The NorCal H&I Committee requests that the Pink Cans be passed separately from and after the baskets to avoid subtracting from support of the 7th Tradition and encourages all members to remove the cans from the baskets if they are being passed together.
