San Francisco AIDS Emergency Fund Celebrates 25 Millionth Donation to Low-Income Persons With HIV/AIDS
August 15, 2007
The San Francisco AIDS Emergency Fund, which annually helps more than 2,000 low-income San Franciscans with HIV/AIDS pay their bills when they are too ill to work, recently commemorated the issuing of its 25 millionth grant dollar. "Twenty-five years of AIDS is nothing to celebrate," said Mike Smith, executive director. "But 25 million dollars of community support for people with AIDS is." This achievement, said Smith, "belongs to the thousands of donors and volunteers whose tireless generosity and hard work have gotten us to this milestone." SFAEF provides short-term help with expenses like rent, utilities, and uninsured medical costs.
