Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) weakens a person’s immune system. The virus can be contracted through unprotected sex, needle sharing, birth, breastfeeding, and blood transfusions. HIV is transmitted through Blood, Semen, Vaginal Secretions, and Breastmilk. Any person that has engaged in any of these risks with someone living with the virus could be exposed. This means that HIV does not discriminate based on a person’s health, marital status, or income.
AID Upstate has several ways for you to donate! We accept monetary donations, volunteer interests, and even are willing to help you with pickup for items you would like to donate to our Red Ribbon Resale. Whatever you decide, every little bit counts to help those individuals living with HIV in the Upstate.
