Who We Help

We raise money to help the Alliance for Positive Health (formerly AIDS Council of Northeastern NY)  meet  special financial needs of their clients.

The Alliance provides direct services to people living with HIV/AIDS and their family members as well as HIV prevention services.

It also provides assistance to people with other chronic illnesses

The money we raise assists clients who may have an emergency, unplanned or special need that cannot be financially met elsewhere including food, housing or transportation costs.

The money we raise also enables the Alliance for Positive Health to provide special programs and activities that improve a clients' well-being and quality of life.

We also promote services and other activities of the Alliance for Positive Health.

 What We Do


Our annual events include several book sales  at the Albany NYEmpire State Plaza and  two in front of Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza.

We also hold an annual Book Wrap project during the holiday season at Book House, our long-term primary sponsor.

We have also been partnering with the Eighth Step, a non-profit music venue with periodic joint music sales. 


Help Fight AIDS Through Books and Music, is an all-volunteer fund raising and outreach project for the Alliance for Positive Health.  

Our project began almost 25 years ago at the height of the HIV/AIDS crisis.

Our efforts are dedicated to helping the Alliance's clients who may be living in poverty and need special financial assistance that cannot be met elsewhere.

Our volunteers include students, retirees, employer groups, working adults and anyone wanting to help.
