Red Scarf Knitting Call Out

October 7, 2018

 

Red Scarf needs knitters!  Join us today by making a Red Scarf to raise awareness and end stigma in our community. 

Since 2012, our community has handcrafted over 6,000 scarves for HIV/AIDS awareness. Like the red ribbon, the red scarf is a symbol of awareness and support for people living with HIV/AIDS. These scarves are tagged with important information about HIV to raise awareness and end stigma in our community.

We kindly request that scarves are knit/crocheted using red yarn and measure about 6" x 60" (15cm x 150cm). If you have the capacity to purchase your own yarn, please do. We are happy to provide yarn to those who could otherwise not participate thanks to a donation from Union Gas. You can pick up yarn at reception during our regular business hours Mon-Fri, 9-5. Please contact Fran at fmckeown@hivaidsconnection.ca for more information.

Please donate scarves to #30-186 King St, London, ON. The sooner the better, as we label the scarves in advance of World AIDS Day. Please note that we accept them all year round.
