For years, friends and donors of the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin (ARCW) have generously supported the holiday gift basket fund. This fund allows ARCW to deliver food baskets for Thanksgiving and Christmas to people and families confronting HIV/AIDS across the state of Wisconsin. We need your help again this year! Your donation will help feed an entire family during this holiday season. Each basket includes traditional Wisconsin fare of turkey or ham, sweet potatoes and vegetables, dressing, cranberry sauce and pie. The holidays are a time to reflect and be thankful, we at ARCW are thankful for you and your generosity over these many years!
Your donation means that our clients – at least for one day – do not need to worry about how they will be able to provide a holiday meal to share with family and friends. Your donation provides much needed relief for many who face HIV disease across the state of Wisconsin at a time of year when the warmth of hospitality is so treasured especially by those who feel marginalized.
Access to healthy nutrition is a cornerstone of ensuring that patients at ARCW remain strong and healthy for years to come. Our 10 ARCW food pantries across the state of Wisconsin deliver over 600 thousand pounds of food throughout the year. With your support today, we are able to provide 5,200 holiday plates to our patients and clients above and beyond our normal food services.
Being able to provide a traditional holiday meal to our patients is one example of ARCW’s integrated model of care. Through the ARCW Medical Home, our patients receive a one of a kind, holistic approach to their complex healthcare needs. ARCW services include medical care, mental health care, dental care, legal services, social services, prevention services and a full service pharmacy. It is because of support from people like you that ARCW can offer this integrated model of care to anyone facing HIV disease in the state of Wisconsin, regardless of their ability to pay.
