AIDS Walk Detroit, put on each year by Steppin’ Out, is one of many walks held around the state each fall to help raise funds for the thousands of people living in Michigan with HIV/AIDS.
In addition to participating in the walk, Steppin’ Out is also looking for volunteers for their Special Events Committee. Volunteers will help with any number of events in 2009, including home tours, shopping sprees, garden parties and chili cook-offs. Newcomers and past volunteers alike are welcome to help out.
Steppin’ Out will host an informational meet and greet at their offices on Thursday, March 12 from 6-7 p.m. Those interested in attending should call Steppin’ Out Program Director Alyssa Johnson at 248-399-9255, or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Those unable to attend, but who are still interested in volunteering, should also contact her.
