Volunteer with the AIDS Holiday Project

The AIDS Holiday Project helps to meet the holiday needs of low-income households impacted by HIV & AIDS in 36 counties in Southwestern Indiana, Northwestern Kentucky & Southern Illinois. In 2011, the project met the needs of 560 adults & 354 children that live in low-income households impacted by HIV / AIDS. The project goes through medical providers to access the needs of these patients. So in addition to meeting the needs of households without insurance and on disability, we are also able to meet the needs of low-income working households that live in poverty.
