Each year, AOW partners with the AIDS Council of Northeastern NY to sponsor a family for Christmas  living with HIV/AIDS.  It is always a very rewarding experience for us to provide gifts for Christmas to all members of the family.  Each year, we are surprised to see the limited number of items that each member of a family requests; we make it our mission to go above and beyond their requests and provide a Christmas our sponsor families will not soon forget.  The AIDS Council is a not-for-profit human service agency whose mission is to reduce the impact and incidence of HIV/AIDS and other serious medical and social conditions.  For information on how you can help at any time of the year, or for information about their holiday sponsorship program, go to http://www.aidscouncil.org/Home.aspx
