California: World AIDS Day in the Valley

December 7, 2007

Numerous events were held in Silicon Valley to mark World AIDS Day. Among them:

  • A civic ceremony and interfaith gathering was held in downtown San Jose, where proclamations and speeches about the epidemic's continuing impact were delivered.
  • The Health Trust AIDS Service in Campbell, which serves 3,000 area residents, marked its 20th anniversary on Friday.
  • About 300 people turned out for a Saturday event organized by The Journey, a San Jose-based church. The volunteers assembled orange "caregiver kits" that included anti-bacterial soap, washcloths, anti-fungal creams, cotton balls, acetaminophen, and other items for overseas AIDS health care providers. Last fiscal year, the Christian relief group World Vision sent 75,000 of the kits abroad; it hopes to send another 250,000 this year.
