Let's So This ... TOGETHER !

Happy New Year

Your caring magnifies the work we do at NJB!  We just want you to know that we care about you too. Without your assistance much of our most compassionate work may not be accomplished.  Our caring is most needed at this time of year to sustain the lives, both figuratively and actually, of not only our clients but with our entire community.  Simple things like checking on one another during the holiday season, inviting people to events, and even just making a calls are really needed. We just do this… funded or not !
So, with that sentiment you should feel good about what you’ll bring to 2018. Know that your gifts enable what prospers not what harms… what gives hope and a future.
Our services, projects, outreach, and events are not fully covered by grants. HIV/AIDS is still around and you are still needed to stop it. If you still are making a choice about your final year end donations for tax year 2017… please consider Buddies of NJ, Inc.
We have great things in store for 2018 and look forward to working with you collaboratively to bend the curve of new infections and connect HIV positive individuals to care.
There is still time to make a tax-deductible contribution to support NJB’s vision and help us stay in the fight.
