Southern Illinois AIDS Coalition Seeking Holiday Sponsors

Kira auf der Heide
The group has several familes left to be sponsored for Christmas.

The Southern Illinois AIDs Coalition is seeking donations and sponsors for the holidays.

The project helps needy families whose households are impacted by HIV/AIDS. There are several families still in need of sponsors to fulfill wishlists and the group is also accepting donations. Gas cards and grocery gift cards are specially appreciated.

Vice President of Finance LaGina Crimm said the impact of the holiday project goes beyond meeting material needs.

“With COVID, sometimes just making human contact with another person, being mindful of being socially distant, makes a major impact on their health and well-being and their psyche as well,” Crimm said.

Anyone wishing to sponsor a family or donate can call or text 812-480-0204 or email SIAIDSCo@gmail.com for more information. More information can also be found on the group’s Facebook page.

As a WSIU donor, you don’t simply watch or listen to public media programs, you are a partner. By making a gift, you help WSIU produce, purchase, and broadcast programs you care about and enjoy – every day of the year.
