CONGRATULATIONS to all our Grand Prize Winners!
Funds raised from Dine IN For Life could not come at a more critical time. Demand for WNCAP services - including medical case management, food delivery, and harm reduction - skyrocketed at the beginning of the pandemic and has not come back down.
People living with HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, and substance use disorder need you more than ever.
Thank you to our generous sponsors, Restaurants, and community supporters - you are the reason we can continue this lifesaving work.
Oh, and by the way... HAPPY PRIDE!!! 🖤🤎❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
WNCAP Sponsoring GRINDfest 2021
At WNCAP, we believe social justice and equity are central to our work. With this in mind, we added Juneteenth to WNCAP's official annual holiday schedule.
This year, all WNCAP offices will close on Friday, June 18 in observation of Juneteenth on Saturday, June 19.
This is a small step, but one we felt was important to take in the long journey towards equity and justice in our WNC community and beyond.
How are we going to be celebrating Juneteenth? In part, by attending GRINDfest 2021 this weekend!
WNCAP is proud to sponsor the Depot Street Dance Party to close out GRINDfest at 9pm on Saturday, June 19 in the River Arts District!
Because of sponsors like WNCAP, GRINDfest is totally FREE! Bring the whole family and friends and enjoy the Blackest Weekend in Asheville. For more info visit the Black Wall Street webpage.
WNCAP Tabling at Hola Asheville on Saturday
WNCAP will tabling at this Saturday's Hola Asheville Festival. Stop by Pack Square between 11am and 6:30pm to say buenos días!
Enjoy the sights, sounds, music, pageantry, colorful costumes and extraordinary talent of Latin America. Also, free COVID-19 vaccinations and COVID tests will be available! No appointments needed.
Requesting Donations of Furniture & Household Items
Let's start with the good news... Many of our clients are newly housed! Stable housing is a basic human right and WNCAP is thrilled to connect our clients with shelter.
However, we now have a BIG need for furniture and other household items. Do you have any couches, chairs, beds, coffee tables, lamps, shower curtains, sheets, towels/washcloths, dishtowels, or window curtains that you would like to donate to folks in need?
If so, please contact Lacy at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 828-252-7489 and ask for Lacy.
WNCAP recently received a large donation of kitchen items, so we're not really looking for those, but anything else will be gladly accepted. We are continuously in awe of our kind and generous WNC community!
