CORE Center Stigma Busters
Hi Team CORE friends, family & supporters!
Welcome to our team page and thank you for your support. As the CORE Center approaches its 20th anniversary of opening its doors, our team fundraising goal is $20,000.
Every year since the start of the walk in Chicago, our team has raised funds specifically to support patient services. As one of the top 10 providers of care in the country with over 5,000 patients, the needs of our patients are numerous and fundraising through the walk is critical. Over 80% of our patients have an annual income at or below the federal poverty level ($11,880). Thus, the ability to purchase anything beyond the necessities is difficult. We want to be able to assist patients when they are in need, so they can focus on achieving their goals of better health and quality of life.
We would appreciate your generosity to support the following patient services championed by our 2017 AIDS Walk & Run team:
$500 - Supports the provision of a full set of dentures
$250 - Supports the provision of a bed
$200 - Supports a patient family with winter coats, hats, gloves & boots
$100 - Supports one EMPOWER patient education session
$75 - Supports the purchase of clothing for HIV+ youth
$50 - Supports the purchase of food for patients recently discharged from the hospital and/or in need of lunch/snack while at the CORE Center
$40 - Supports the purchase of Ensure for patients in need of nutrition assistance
We appreciate your support for our team, the patients we serve and the CORE Center!
