​​Crafting HIV/AIDS awareness in the Durham Region

We don't mind if you knit or Crochet your scarf, they all look beautiful to us!  ​​

Thank you to everyone who donated to the 2016 Red Scarf Project. It was truly wonderful to see the amazing creativity and generosity from the people in the community. With your help, we were able to double the amount of scarves collected last year, with a total of 880 scarves that were distributed throughout Oshawa and Whitby this year. 

Join us at the AIDS Committee of Durham Region if you want to get ideas for a head start on the 2017 Red Scarf Project.

What's it all about?...

All of the donated scarves will be tied to trees and posts all over the City of Oshawa and Whitby on World AIDS Day - December 1st, to create awareness about HIV/AIDS, to catch people's attention and to start a conversation about HIV/AIDS in the Durham Region!

We ask that scarves are knitted/crocheted in red yarn, that they measure at least 6" wide x 60" long and you may use a pattern of your choice. 

Scarves are to be dropped off at the reception of the AIDS Committee Durham Region (22 King Street West, Suite 202, Oshawa) by Noon on Wednesday, November 23rd. 

Not only are we creating awareness about HIV/AIDS in the Durham Region, but we are also helping to keep everyone warm this winter! Each scarf will have a tag attached to it that says you may take the scarf if you are feeling cold, any scarves that are left after World AIDS Day will be collected in and donated to local shelters.
