Daughters of Sarah Auxiliary is a special affiliate of the Foundation. The Auxiliary raises money to enhance the life of the residents at Daughters of Sarah Senior Community.
Prior to 1994, Albany, Schenectady and Troy each maintained separate Auxiliaries. In 1994, these groups merged to form the present single Auxiliary.
You can become a member of the Auxiliary, whether you are female or male, by paying yearly dues of $18 (In 2008, yearly dues will be increased to $25) or you can become a life member for a one-time dues payment of $150 (In 2008, lifetime dues will be increased to $175).
