ALFA opens ‘adoption’ program

Carolinas News Notes

HICKORY, N.C. — The AIDS Leadership Foothills-area Alliance (ALFA) is in urgent need of the community’s help. They say that the list of children is growing who may go without a gift at the holiday season. That’s why they have launched their Holiday Adoption Program.

The deadline is Nov. 30.

Recipients of gifts are ALFA children who are either infected with or have been affected by HIV/AIDS. Parents in this situation often have to throw whatever resources they have at the necessities of life.
