World AIDS Day is a global initiative held annually on December 1 to raise awareness, fight prejudice, and improve education about HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Keeping in line with this year's theme, The Time to Act is Now, HAART is participating in World AIDS Day events throughout the Capitol City to better educate our community about the disease. We invite you to attend, volunteer or make a gift on World AIDS Day in support of #GivingTuesday.
Feed and Clothe Our Community for World AIDS Day
December 1 is World AIDS Day AND #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. What better way to give back than to make a gift to our Street Outreach Program. Each week HAART staff visits neighborhoods during the early morning hours to give food, toiletries and HIV information to our community's homeless. Some mornings we meet homeless veterans other days we meet families with small kids. On World AIDS Day, we would like to hand out warm clothing along with toiletries and a hot meal. The Time to Act is Now Baton Rouge. Please participate in #GivingTuesday by making a contribution to the Street Outreach Team. We also welcome donated items for our care kits. Our Street Outreach Team along with MAC Cosmetic volunteers will deliver the care kits beginning December 1 through the holiday season.
