To move forward, we must make decisions very soon.
Your voice and views are important and caluable, so we hope you will make attending this meeting a priority.

This year we are again collecting gifts for youth in Santa Clara County who are living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. Some have HIV themselves and some have one or both parents living with HIV. These families cannot afford to provide Christmas gifts for their children, so we are helping them out through the Health Trust’s AIDS Services. Joe Shackelford will be leading this campaign again assisted by his work group at Stanford. Donations may be given to MCCSJ to help purchase gifts and gift cards. The wish lists will be available soon if you wish to shop yourself. Meanwhile donations may be sent to MCCSJ at P O Box 388, San Jose, CA 95103. You can also make a donation via the web at our donations page
. Please be sure to indicate that the donation is for the Christmas Gift Drive. Please be sure donmations are received by December 9th. Thank you. Watch our newsletter for more information about this campaign. We appreciate your generosity.
