The Aliveness Project in Sight of Reaching Goal

The Aliveness Project has taken two very large steps closer to its goal of a new building at 3808 Nicollet Avenue, Minneapolis. With the help of Erik Tollesfson and Brian LaMere of Wells Fargo, it received a $60,000 grant earlier this fall. Shortly thereafter, UPS gave an early Christmas gift of $5,000 to the organization as well. With the help of these two companies, plus many others groups and individuals, The Aliveness Project will be able not only to continue its great work of helping people living with HIV/AIDS, but also to do even more in a larger, up-to-date building when it opens.
