Holiday Programs

The winter holiday period can be an especially challenging time and so PWA has created three Holiday Programs; children’s gift certificates and holiday party, holiday bags, and Starry Night

Children’s Gift certificate program and holiday party

Children’s Gift Certificates Program helps families struggling to meet basic needs afford gifts for their children during the holiday season. Each December, PWA distributes HBC gift certificates to children who are HIV positive or to children whose parents are HIV positive.

Community Members interested in the program contact their Benefits & Assistance Case Manager.

Holiday Bags

The Holiday bags program provides people living with HIV/AIDS with a special hamper of high quality food items, personal care products and other gifts in order that they may participate in the spirit of the season. For many, it is their only opportunity to receive a gift. Holiday bags serve to lift the community members spirits and to maintain their nutritional intake. All clients are welcome to receive a Holiday Hamper and attend the Holiday Dinner and Show. Information about Hamper distribution is available in November.

PWA thanks our long standing partners that help make this program possible:
