Become a Volunteer in 2018
Western North Carolina AIDS Project provides boxes for
Families and Persons with HIV/AIDS as part of their outreach program in cooperation with Loving Food Resources*. Many clients are unable to come and pick up their Food Boxes from LFR; so it is necessary to transport them.
The need has increased in 2018. WNCAP is looking for volunteers with reliable transportation to help every second and fourth Saturday from 9:45am-noon for Asheville/Buncombe county.
If you can volunteer please contact Chris
at 828-252-7489 ext.315

* Loving Food Resources (LFR )is our community Food Bank serving persons and families of persons living with HIV/AIDS.
Everything is done on a volunteer basis. For more information on how you can contribute or help volunteer at the food bank go to LFR
