LOS ANGELES (KABC) – Sunday marked the end of an important phase of funding for the AIDS Walk Los Angeles 2021, an event that will be virtual this year due to the pandemic.
To date, the organizers have received a total of nearly $ 1 million in donations.
Although October 3rd was the fundraising deadline to qualify for plaques and other prizes, the organization is still accepting donations. The final deadline is November 5th.
APLA Health also accepts donations for similar purposes year round.

Every year the event collects important funds in the fight against HIV / AIDS and supports the non-profit organization.
APLA Health also plays a role in the fight against homelessness as the group provides residential assistance services in Los Angeles County.
“We have ongoing housing support that helps families and people living with HIV / AIDS who are homeless, have mental illness or are addicted to chemicals,” said Terry Goddard, executive director of the Alliance for Housing and Healing.
Goddard believes that solving the problem of homelessness in Los Angeles will require long-term efforts.
“Working with ALPA will give our customers more efficient access to services such as grocery banking, benefits advice, and comprehensive health and dental care,” he said.
