Reviews for AIDS Assistance Program
They have helped my nephew now for about 9 years. He is a disabled vet living with AIDS and the food cards they give to him every month helps him stay alive and with dignity. I applause these people.
One of only three local groups I give my time and $ to. Small staff, basic no-frills offices and well thought of in the local community. Winners in my book.
This group puts on fun events such as their signature "Evening Under the Stars" which raises awareness of the organization. Great cause.
I volunteer for this information and enjoy the camaraderie this organization shows to its volunteers and appreciate how the clients are put 1st and foremost. I will continue to do what I can for this special group of charitable people.
Well run with a distinct mission. These folks make $$$ go as far as possible. A treat to do biz with them.
My Uncles Partner is in charge of this organization and I think it is terrific. Please support them in anyway you can with donations or time. They really work hard.
This organization is "Lean and nice" --play on words..they help so many do so much good. I have watched the kindness and thoughtfulness for many years. Top Notch!
I've watched my dear friend Mark run this organization like a tight ship, but yet he beams with compassion for those who are not so lucky
I am a client of A.A.P. an would not eat if it was not for them. I hold them up on a pedestal for all the kind ways they are to me
I've watched my son run this organization and he makes me so proud. As a kid he was more concerned with others 1st putting himself at the bottom. I have had the hoy of meeting some of the clients he helps and it makes me happy to see all the do.
