The San Francisco AIDS Foundation was founded in 1982 in San Francisco's Castro district as an emergency response to a quickly emerging health crisis. Its primary purpose was simply to assemble and disseminate critical information to gay men who were being diagnosed with a rare and frightening cancer. Today, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation is firmly established as a global leader in the fight against AIDS. With an annual budget of $18 million, over 100 employees, 450 volunteers and 150,000 individuals served in 1998, the AIDS Foundation continues to face daunting challenges at every turn with compassion, dignity and a sense of purpose.
Volunteers will be working onsite at Levi's Plaza to help SFAF in their efforts to keep their clients healthy. Converting bulk supplies to individual sizes is a never ending job that the SFAF relies heavily on volunteers for. Work will involve putting together snack packs as well as making-up small packs of both Vitamin C powder and cotton balls. All of these items will be handed out at mobile clinics that SFAF runs several times a week around San Francisco.
