About Us

​​Help Fight AIDS Through Books and Music is an all-volunteer project benefiting the Alliance for PositiveHealth.. We hold book sales and related fund raising activities.  Proceeds help the Alliance meet emergency financial or special needs of their clients. which cannot be met elsewhere including food, housing or transportation costs..

The money also enables the Alliance to provide special programs and activities that improve clients' well being and quality of life.

We display AIDS/HIV prevention and educational material at our events and information about services of the Alliance for Positive Health.  Our goals are to also promote AIDS understanding and prevention and to increase support and compassion for People With HIV/AIDS and for others with debilitating diseases.  We also promote voluntarism.
