Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The Georgia AIDS Coalition ("GAC") is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that is working to help decrease the incidence of HIV/AIDS cases in Georgia. GAC was created in 1989 to act as an education resource for the formation and articulation of public policy regarding HIV infection. Recently, GAC's initial mission has moved from the public policy arena to incorporate direct health initiatives.
In 2010, GAC launched a mobile testing program to enhance the efforts to provide prevention services, education, and early detection of HIV. The mobile testing unit's primary function is to perform HIV screening tests, and secondly to do other tests like blood pressure, glucose, and hemoglobin checks.
