CALIFORNIA: Solano AIDS Coalition to Hold HIV/AIDS Events Saturdays in Downtown Vallejo


Times-Herald (Vallejo) (07.18.2013) Aids Weekly Plus

Each Saturday morning through November from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, volunteers from the Solano AIDS Coalition will be available in downtown Vallejo, Calif., at Sacramento and Georgia Streets to help individuals make quilt squares in memory of loved ones lost to HIV/AIDS. According to Quilt Project Event Organizer Isabel James, individuals can create a quilt square at the booth or take a square home, decorate it, and bring it back. Individuals also can request that volunteer artists make a quilt square for them in honor of a loved one. The coalition is seeking volunteers as well as donations for the quilt project, including all supplies needed to create the squares. Project volunteers will assemble the squares into a quilt that will be displayed and may become part of The Names Project–AIDS Memorial Quilt. For further information, contact Solano AIDS Coalition Director Maria Saucedo at (707) 450–5861.
