Washington, District of Columbia 20007

I would like to invite you to attend a special event on the evening of December 2nd to benefit Metro TeenAIDS (MTA). As part of the World Bank Human Development Network Community Connections Campaign (CCC), we want to raise money to help MTA provide the much needed HIV/AIDS services to DC’s poorest youth.

Many of you already know of the great work Metro TeenAIDS does. They are one of the most well respected nonprofits in DC and considered national and international experts on providing high quality HIV-related services to HIV-positive youth, youth at high risk for HIV/AIDS infection and the children of HIV-infected parents.

You can make a difference! As good Bank citizens and Washington Metropolitan Area neighbors, we have the potential to make a great impact on curbing the HIV epidemic in DC. And as advocates of human development work, Metro TeenAIDS embodies the values we hold most dear.

Investing in our local community feels good, does good and will ensure that the quality of life for all area residents improves. As the third largest employer in Washington DC, the World Bank Group recognizes the individual and corporate responsibility where we live and work. In keep with the Bank’s poverty reduction mission, the community outreach program of which CCC is a part seeks to improve the lives of our neighbors in the greater metropolitan community.
