Small Group Project Opportunity

Mazzoni hosts safer sex kit-stuffing parties, where volunteers put condoms, lube and safer-sex information into a packet for distribution.  Last year we distributed approximately 170,000 condoms and safer sex kits at our three locations and at community events.  This is a great opportunity for 5 – 10 of your friends and colleagues to get together for a hands-on project that really can make a difference.  We will work with you to set a date and time, though Tuesdays and Fridays before 5 p.m. are preferred.

Have you thought about throwing an event to raise money for Mazzoni Center? Mazzoni Center Community Champions are individuals, groups and organizations that throw fundraisers for Mazzoni Center. Last fiscal year, Community Champions raised over $79,265 for our programs and services. House parties, Cabaret or club nights, drag shows, carnation sales, happy hours, participations in triathalons, bake sales, and bowling tournaments are just some of the ways our friends and supporters have worked with us in the past. We'll provide the administrative support and work with you... you throw the event! Contact Michael Kelly for more information ([email protected])
