World AIDS Day 2009 ~ Preparations Under Way

wad flyer09

Vermont CARES is preparing for a busy World AIDS Day ~ December 1, 2009.  We hope you’ll join us in some portion of the day’s commemoration, outreach, and awareness-building.  Vermont CARES’ supporters, community, and clients are asked to pause in honor and memory on this auspicious day, while also encouraging increased HIV testing and awareness. 
 
During the day of December 1st, we will expand the walk-in hours of Burlington’s rapid HIV testing to be open from 9am to 7pm.  In honor of World AIDS Day, expanded hours will continue from 9am to 4pm daily through the week. 
 
Further, staff and volunteers will blanket venues throughout the county and state providing information tables and red ribbons for awareness, as well as education presentations in forums such as St. Johnsbury Academy. 
 
Evening activities will include a candle lighting ceremony at the Burlington Unitarian Universalist Church at 5:30pm to honor the lives and love of people with HIV/AIDS.

Please visit our website at www.vtcares.org for more details as other events develop around the state.  We certainly invite you to join us during the day or evening to focus on the local and global impact of HIV and AIDS.
