Triad Health Project is seeking community support as they work to close a gap in their Dining for Friends event’s net proceeds.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Triad Health Project (THP), an HIV/AIDS service and support organization, is currently $21,575 short of its 2016 Dining for Friends (DFF) goal and seeks the community’s support to close the gap before the end of its fiscal year, June 30.

“In so many ways, we’ve had a remarkable DFF season, with wonderful parties and engaged and generous donors. But a few of our long-standing and high-contributing parties didn’t happen this year, and we need some extra help from our community to reach our goal,” said Ken Keeton, the agency’s interim executive director.

DFF is a 27-year tradition for THP. Funds raised by DFF support THP’s direct client services programs which are focused on appropriate medical care and provide a host of supportive services to people living with HIV/AIDS. Additionally, funds support THP’s prevention, testing, and education outreach initiatives throughout the larger community.

Donations of any amount are welcomed and appreciated, and can be made online or by mailing a check to Triad Health Project, P.O. Box 5716, Greensboro, NC 27435.

“HIV/AIDS remains a huge challenge in Guilford County, and it’s not going away anytime soon,” Keeton added. “Nearly 3,000 of our friends and neighbors are living with this chronic illness, and we still see new HIV infections, particularly among young adults. There is still a lot of work to do.”

THP has served the Triad community for 30 years.
