The HIV/AIDS Food Bank today received a donation of approximately BDS$1,500 in food and a cheque worth over BDS$500 from a group of young men called the Chelsea Boyzz.
The group donated the foodstuff and money after hosting a "slippers, shorts and socks" fete to encourage persons to give food items to those affected or infected with HIV/AIDS.
Spokesperson Kirk Phillips noted that the association was always interested in giving back to the community and used the party as a fun way to raise money and have persons donate non-perishable food.
Manager at the Food Bank, Donna Barker, thanked the Chelsea Boyzz for their donation, noting that she was impressed by the fact that some community-minded young men got together for a worthy cause.??
The HIV/AIDS Food Bank was established to ensure that the nutritional needs of persons infected with and affected by HIV/AIDS are being met.??
