Transcript community Donations sought for efforts to help those in need HOUSTON VOICE » DECEMBER 10, 1999 OCCASIONS • COMMUNITY CALENDAR CLASSIFIEDS • BUSINESS DIRECTORY CARMART • MY STARS by ROBERT B. HENDERSON Last week's World AIDS Day marked the start of two annual holiday drives to assist those impacted by HIV/AIDS. The Fifth Annual Red Ribbon Toy Drive, a partnership between AIDS Foundation Houston, Texas Children's Hospital and University of Texas at Houston Health Science Center, ends today, but volunteers are needed to bag and distribute the toys on Dec. 17. Organizers hope the campaign will bring in 3,000 unwrapped toys to help up to 700 children, said Ken Kelly, communications director for AIDS Foundation Houston. Between four and six gifts are provided for each child, including a major gift and some stocking stuffers, Kelly said. The Red Ribbon Toy Drive is assisted by the National Leather Association:Houston, which stopped its own toy drive to bolster the Red Ribbon effort. Other groups that help include KTBU Channel 55, MAC Cosmetics, Toys R Us, Weingarten Realty, KHYS-98.5 and the Alley Theater. "Last year, we collected around 2,500 toys," Kelly said. "I feel comfortable we'll even top that this year. The response has been really incredible." While the Red Ribbon Toy Drive ends today, some volunteers are needed to sort and bag the toys for gender and age, Kelly said. The 10th Annual Holiday Gift Box Project, sponsored by Blaffer Gallery, The Art Museum of the University of Houston, runs through Dec. 16. The drive benefits clients of Bering Care Center and Omega House. The event grew out of World AIDS Day and Day Without Art events, and the drive expanded to benefit Bering and Omega when the two AIDS service organizations merged last year, said Davis Northcutt, Holiday Gift Box Project Coordinator at Blaffer Gallery. "At the time, what a lot of museums and places were doing was covering up a piece of art with black fabric," he said. "We did that for a couple of years, but we decided we would do something more proactive. Instead of just being negative, we would take on this project." Blaffer enlisted the partnership of other arts organizations in Houston, like Museum of Fine Arts-Houston, The Menil Collection, DiverseWorks, The Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston Coalition of Visual Artists and The Art League to help with the project. The project seeks donations of new, basic supplies, like shampoo, T-shirts, deodorant, toothbrushes, razors, toilet paper, dental Co«**e *<**■* Celebrating 25 Jean in the Community ^^ Catholic Mass Ctkbrattd Saturdays at 7:30pm 1307-ttyak • 713-880-2872 Kathy Baker, a program manager with AIDS Foundation Houston, was one of several volunteers on hand in December 1998 to distribute about 2,500 toys to more than 600 children affected by HIV/AIDS during the Red Ribbon Toy Drive. Officials hope to colect even more during this year's event. floss, mouthwash, calendars, stamps and soap. Drop spots for the items are spread across the city, including Blaffer Gallery and Houston Voice. The donations will be distributed at the Bering Omega holiday part on Dec. 17. "When we first started doing the pro)ect, it was almost all male—some gifts are gen der specific. This year they're asking for roughly two-thirds male, one third female. It shows the changing face of HIV/AIDS," Northcutt said. Organizers hope to provide each of the 60 clients with a box of supplies, Northcutt said.
