Dining Out For Life Portland
April 25, 2019
When you dine at a participating restaurant on Thursday, April 25, between 20 to 35 percent of your bill goes directly to EMO’s HIV Day Center & OHSU’s Partnership Project. Both organizations work closely together to provide vital programs & services to individuals living with HIV in the Portland metro area.
EMO’s HIV Day Center, celebrating its 27th anniversary this year, is the oldest multi-service drop in center for low income individuals infected and affected by HIV in the United States. The Center serves approximately 300 people yearly, providing them with two hot meals a day, information and referral services, computer and internet access, phones, shower and laundry facilities as well as volunteer professionals who provide services such as massage therapy, acupuncture and haircuts.
The Daily Bread Express program of the HIV Day Center delivers weekly meals and supplemental groceries to more than 60 homebound individuals.
Partnership Project is entering its 24th year of providing critical services to HIV positive individuals in the Portland Metro area. Last year 700 people living with HIV were served through our HIV programs. They help individuals get into medical care, maintain insurance, take their medications and connect to essential supportive services.
Check out the Participating Restaurants Page to see which of your favorites are supporting Dining Out For Life this year! Remember, you can support Dining Out For Life during breakfast, lunch, dinner, or cocktail hours.
