Hempstead, NY - December 8, 2016 - M·A·C Cosmetics’ employees joined EAC Network and prepared holiday meals for people with HIV/AIDS for World Aids Day on December 1st.
The group volunteered on behalf of the M·A·C AIDS Fund, which provides grants and support to programs that perform vital services for those living with HIV/AIDS.
