Christmas Gifts From NY Students Promote HIV Education
Members from an HIV/AIDS student education group at an
alternative school in Buffalo, New York, collected Christmas gifts for an
HIV-positive mother and her 10-year-old child, WIVB.com reports.
The students attend the Academy School @ 44 for grades 7 to
12. The teenagers adopted the family as a way of educating their fellow
classmates about HIV/AIDS. The Erie County Medical Center connected the
students with the family and delivered the gifts.
“These are just a few items we put together in little boxes
for the family just to be generous,” said Lamere Sims, a member of the student
group Peer Educators for HIV/AIDS Awareness, which coordinated the effort.
