Red Scarf Campaign


Scarf and Lamp4th Annual Red Scarf Campaign

Calling all knitters, crocheters and crafters.  We need your help!

AIDS New Brunswick is planning the 4th Annual Red Scarf Campaign.

During National AIDS Awareness Week, AIDS New Brunswick will be tying Red Scarves on lampposts and benches around Downtown Fredericton in a symbolic representation of the red ribbon used to represent those lost to, and still affected by HIV/AIDS.

In 2017 we collected over 100 knitted, crocheted and fleece scarves.  Help us do it again this year!

In order for this to be possible we are hoping to have donated 150 homemade scarves that are:
  • Red;
  • Knitted, crocheted, or no-sew fleece;
  • Roughly 6″ wide and 60″ in length; and
  • In a pattern of your choice.

The scarves will be pinned with an information card explaining the symbolism.

Best of all, the scarves will be free for the public to take!  Everyone will be encouraged to wear their scarf to show their support for World AIDS Day and National AIDS Awareness Week.

In order to have time to affix the scarves with the information cards we are asking all donations be received by November 29.

Scarves can be dropped off at AIDS New Brunswick, 65 Brunswick Street, Suite G17, Fredericton.

If you would like to donate a scarf or scarves, or to learn more about this event please contact Keri-Ann at 1-800-561-4009 or email redscarf@aidsnb.com so that we can add your donated scarf to our tally.
