"GREENSBORO, N.C. (May 27, 2016) - Triad Health Project (THP), the area’s HIV/AIDS service and support organization for 30 years, is currently $21,575 short of its 2016 Dining for Friends (DFF) goal and seeks the community’s support to close the gap before the end of its fiscal year, June 30.
“In so many ways, we’ve had a remarkable DFF season, with wonderful parties and engaged and generous donors. But a few of our long-standing and high-contributing parties didn’t happen this year, and we need some extra help from our community to reach our goal,” says Ken Keeton, the agency’s interim executive director.
DFF is a 27-year tradition for THP. Funds raised by DFF support THP’s direct client services programs which are focused on appropriate medical care and providing a host of supportive services to people living with HIV/AIDS. Additionally, funds support THP’s prevention, testing, and education outreach initiatives throughout the larger community.
Donations of any amount are welcomed and appreciated, and can be made online at www.triadhealthproject.com, or by mailing a check to Triad Health Project, PO Box 5716, Greensboro, NC 27435.
“HIV/AIDS remains a huge challenge in Guilford County, and it’s not going away anytime soon,” says Keeton. “Nearly 3,000 of our friends and neighbors are living with this chronic illness, and we still see new HIV infections, particularly among young adults. There is still a lot of work to do.”
About Triad Health Project
Founded in 1986 by a group of friends who banded together in support of other friends who were newly diagnosed with HIV and lacking any system of support, Triad Health Project has evolved into Guilford County’s only HIV/AIDS service organization. Triad Health Project works to fulfill its mission of providing practical and emotional support to individuals infected with and affected by HIV/AIDS, and educates those at risk and the community at large about HIV/AIDS. THP currently provides direct care and support services to over 550 people in the community who are living with HIV/AIDS, and education and free and confidential testing for over 2,000 additional people every year."
