All Month Long
The holiday season is also a time to remember the importance of giving. In recent months the “anti-gay” clauses of many charities have been made extremely public. If this has made you reconsider where your money or time is spent there are some local alternatives to larger charitable organizations. The Gay Community Center of Richmond is dedicated to serving the needs of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities. For only $35 dollars a year you can become a member or give the gift of membership to help support this stellar organization. Not to mention members get some great perks, such as free concert tickets!
The Fan Free Clinic also serves Richmond in an epic capacity and supporting this clinic is vital to its continued success. The clinic provides medical treatment, health education, social serices, and advocacy for those with limited access to care. You can learn how to donate time or money by visiting their website at www.fanfreeclinic.org.
So grab friends and family come out and support the women and organizations that make Richmond a wonderful place to call home this holiday season.
