On this week’s episode of Just Love, Msgr. Kevin Sullivan talks about World AIDS Day and Catholic Charities of NY’s partnership with The Church of Jesus Christ of Ladder-Day Saints for the Giving Machines.
Andrea Combs, along with other members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, partnered with a group of local and international charities – including Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York – in a kick-off event and ribbon cutting ceremony outside the Mormon Temple in New York City to officially open New York City’s first “Giving Machines.” The Giving Machines are vending machines that allow users to purchase various items, including socks, meals, mosquito netting, and solar lamps, that will be distributed to those in need by aid organizations like Catholic Charities partnering with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on their “Giving Machine” Project this holiday season.
Meagan Frederick, Director of Development and Public Relations at Incarnation Children’s Center, will be commemorating World AIDS Day on Saturday. Meagan shares a bit about the work of Incarnation Children’s Center in caring for children and young adults living with HIV and AIDS and how, through the comprehensive care that is provided at Incarnation Children’s Center, many of the young people who had once been presumed “terminal” have improved enormously clinically and gone on to live full and fruitful lives through advances in medication, and medical treatment and psycho-social care.
