AID Atlanta Receives Proclamation from City of Atlanta In Honor of 40 Years of Service
Thank you so much to Councilman Alex Wan, Council President Doug Shipman, and the rest of the Atlanta City Council for honoring us on Monday, August 1, with a proclamation celebrating our 40 years of service! While we don’t do this work for public recognition, accolades, or awards, it’s nice to know that we have made an impact in our community. We are happy to accept this distinguished honor on behalf of our clients, supporters, staff, and all those we have lost in this battle against HIV/AIDS. We hope that one day, we will no longer be needed. But until then, we will continue to offer our life-saving services and programs to our community.
