APLA Charity Drive

in #life3 years ago

This month, several friends and I organized some fundraising and a charity drive for APLA https://aplahealth.org/

APLA provides food and support to impoverished HIV and AIDS patients in the Los Angeles area. In our first week, we were able to raise $400 and feed over 130 families. I am sharing images and our stories here in the hopes of spreading more information about the cause. If you would like to donate to APLA, you can do so here:

100% of all SBD earned from this post will be donated to APLA. Please upvote and share to spread the word.

Sorry for the long post, here are some potatoes!

Thanks to everyone who attended the event and to APLA for all the amazing work that they do. And thanks to everyone reading! Giving back in your local community is a fun, inspiring way to connect to others. I know we found the act of giving to be incredibly rewarding in itself.

Until next time!
