YPG Cares about Housing Works Bookstore

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

In its second collaboration with Housing Works Bookstore, on Sunday, September 25, 2011, several members of YPG Cares from five AAP member publishing houses assisted with the Housing Works Bookstore Open Air Street Fair. Volunteers were responsible for serving as cashiers, restocking and refilling tables of books, audio, and media, unloading and sorting boxes from the elevators, providing information and assistance, and handing out flyers to passersby along Broadway and in Washington Square Park. All proceeds of the Street Fair went toward ending the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS.

Housing Works is a healing community of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS, with the mission of ending the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS through relentless advocacy, the provision of lifesaving services, and entrepreneurial businesses that sustain its efforts—such as their Bookstore Café, which is staffed almost entirely by volunteers and contributes 100% of its proceeds to the mission.

Stay tuned for our next community service event with Housing Works Bookstore!
