Red Scarf Project in Clinton for World AIDS Day December 1Source: Huron County

Huron County, ON – The Huron County Health Unit, with support from the Regional HIV/AIDS Connection (RHAC), will bring the Red Scarf Project to Clinton on Friday, December 1, World AIDS Day.
World AIDS Day reminds us how important education and services are for people living with HIV/AIDS and their caregivers. The red scarves of the Red Scarf Project are enlarged versions of the red ribbon, the international symbol of AIDS awareness.
At 9 a.m. on Friday December 1, volunteers and staff of Huron County, the Health Unit and the Huron County HIV/AIDS Network (HCHAN) will hang red scarves on lamp and sign posts lining Albert Street downtown. They will also hand out scarves and ribbons to community members downtown as part of a conversation about HIV/AIDS services and supports in Huron County.
Over a dozen volunteers knitted and crocheted the red scarves, using a donation of yarn from Sugar Bush in Listowel. Scarves hung downtown are free for the taking.
RHAC is a community-inspired organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for individuals and diverse communities living with, at-risk for or affected by the challenges associated with HIV / AIDS. For more information, please visit www.hivaidsconnection.ca/
HCHAN was established in 1991 by a group of volunteers wanting to help those living with HIV/AIDS, whether infected, affected, or at risk. Since then, HCHAN has been actively supporting and strengthening the lives of people in Huron County through education and awareness programs, advocacy and agency referrals, and personal support.
