Write messages of hope on luminaries to be lit for World AIDS Day
The Wellness Center will have luminaries lining the St. Paul campus' lower quadrangle during the university's tree-lighting ceremony tomorrow, Nov. 29, as a message of hope for HIV and AIDS patients, caregivers, researchers and medical staff. A moment of silence also will take place during the tree-lighting celebration.
You're encouraged to write messages of hope on the luminaries, pick up information and get a red ribbon to wear. The Wellness Center's info tables will be located from 1 to 3 p.m. today, Nov. 28, in Koch Commons, and from noon to 1 p.m. tomorrow, Nov. 29, in the second-floor atrium of Murray-Herrick Campus Center and in Koch Commons.
World AIDS Day, observed each Dec. 1, is a global effort to address the challenges of the AIDS pandemic, which continues to grow throughout every region of the world.
You also can request a red ribbon via e-mail. Send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your campus mailbox number.
