Mission: Prepare nutritious grocery bags for those living with HIV/AIDS.
Impact: APLA Health and Wellnes is dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by HIV disease, reducing the incidence of HIV infection, and advocating for fair and effective HIV-related public policy.
Volunteer Project: Volunteers help prepare grocery and nutrition bags for distribution through the Necessities of Life Program, which provides food and other basic necessities to low-income people living with HIV/AIDS.
- APLA policy prohibits the following: tank tops, sleeveless shirts, sandals, or open-toe shoes.
- APLA requires all volunteers to complete 1) an online application and 2) the release form packet.
- Tuberculosis is the leading cause of death for people living with HIV, so repeat volunteers must provide evidence of a negative TB test.
