We took some notes on Regional HIV/AIDS Connection’s Red Scarf Project, and we’re hoping to bring the same type of awareness and support to Maine!
Our goal is to have over 500 red scarves ready to go by November 15th in preparation for a World AIDS Day awareness event. We will be distributing the scarves around different locations in Maine in an effort to educate the public on the significance of HIV/AIDS and the need for community involvement in promoting understanding, and bringing an end to stigma.
- Guidelines: Please knit/crochet scarf measuring 6”x60”
