This Thanksgiving help those who are homeless living with HIV/AIDS on the North Shore. Please, share.
Holidays during this pandemic are hitting homeless people with HIV particularly hard. Due to capacity restrictions, many of the shelters have not taken new guests since March. Those without other options are forced to constantly stay on the move and sleep outdoors, and in some instances are unable to safely store their life-saving medications. Even something as simple as finding a safe place to charge a phone can seem like climbing a mountain, leaving some without access to call their providers or follow up with housing leads. The weather is only going to get colder from here on out, making this situation more dire than ever for these individuals living with compromised immune systems.
Throughout the pandemic,
North Shore Health Projecthas been working hard to provide the extra support our homeless HIV+ clients require, but we need more resources. To bring attention to this issue, a bunch of North Shore musicians have come together with a message of hope — singing the classic 80s Crowded House tune, “Don’t Dream It’s Over.” Using the Acapella app, they passed the DIY video from phone to phone to contribute their instruments and voices to the cause.
The video features: Joe Cardoza on bass;
Nathan Cohen on violin; on vocals and keys;
Chris Fritz-Grice on vocals; Brian King on vocals and keys;
Mari Martin on vocals;
Dennis Monagle on drums;
Nadia Robertson on vocals; and Megan Wolf on vocals.
Please, help us support homeless people living with HIV with emergency funds for whatever they might need to stay safe and healthy — things like shelter, transportation, clothing, toiletries or sleeping bags.
Donate today and make a note that it’s for the HIV & homeless fund.
