GAC Deltas on the Frontline!

As the COVID-19 pandemic spread across our region, many of us were stifled and had to stay in. But there are some who are still working and working on the frontlines of the pandemic. Be sure to check out our social media sites to see our GAC Deltas on the Frontline! These sisters put their capes on daily and fight for you and our communities.

Thank you sorors!

World AIDS Day Giving

World AIDS Day Giving
On December 1st, the world commemorates World AIDS Day. People around the world unite to show support for people living with HIV, and to remember those who have died from AIDS related illnesses.
The theme for the 2022 observance is “Reflection. Celebration. Rejuvenation.” As we unite in the fight against HIV, we hope that you join us by making a financial contribution to aid in this epidemic that made its debut in the early 80s. All donations collected will support programs and agencies that continue to serve the population of people who LIVE with HIV/AIDS. For #GivingTuesday, please click the link to support this cause World AIDS Day #GivingTuesday.
