At this Year’s Holiday Party, the CNA will be collecting donations for the Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon’s (EMO) HIV Day Center.
The HIV Day Center is a non-denominational project of the EMO and is housed at the Ainsworth United Church of Christ located at NE 30th Avenue and Ainsworth Street. This center provides over 700 meals each month to low income people dealing with HIV in addition to providing counseling, clothing, showers, recreational therapy, access to computers & phones, and mutual support.
The CNA encourages neighbors to bring one or more of the following items to the Holiday Party to donate to the clientele at the HIV Day Center:
- Warm Sleeping Bags in good condition
- Shampoo and other miscellaneous toiletries, particularly for men
