Red Scarf Project @ OPL

volunteers showing 35 red scarves
27/11/2019

On December 1st, World AIDS Day, the AIDS Committee of Ottawa will place red scarves throughout Ottawa to raise awareness and knowledge about the positive advances in HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention. The Red Scarf stands against stigma to improve the lives of those living with, affected by, and at risk for HIV/AIDS in our community.

We are so pleased to announce that volunteer knitters from Metcalfe, North Gower, and Osgoode branches donated thirty-five hand knit scarves for this year's Red Scarf Project! 

A few of the scarves will be placed in the Metcalfe Client Service Centre by Councillor George Darouze to build awareness in our local community.
