NEED volunteer
Clean needles save lives

Jan. 3, 2014: Breaking News!

In a Christmas miracle, NEED has been awarded a two-year grant by the Elton John AIDS Foundation, administered by AIDS United. In this grant cycle, NEED was awarded $28,000 per year for two years for a total of $56,000!

NEED wishes to thank the Elton John AIDS Foundation and AIDS United for their generous grant. It comes at a time when NEED is facing logistical and financial difficulty in the face of rising service needs.

We also want to thank the volunteers who helped in putting this grant together. NEED is run entirely by volunteers who perform this valuable work in their spare time. We especially want to thank our President, Ryan Wythe, for spearheading the Elton John AIDS Foundation grant project even though he has much less free time than the rest of us.

This grant will go a long way toward helping us outfit our new van and keeping up with an ever-increasing demand for our services.
