OMAHA – University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) students, staff and faculty will take part in a variety of service projects on Tuesday, Dec. 1 for UNO’s 5th annual World AIDS Day of Service.
Projects will run from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center (Room 130).
The service opportunity is meant to raise awareness of World AIDS Day, a global public health campaign highlighting the importance of HIV/AIDS awareness, research and education.
This year, UNO is partnering with the Nebraska AIDS project. Students, staff and faculty will help package safe-sex kits and make fleece blankets and hand warmers for the Nebraska AIDS Project’s clients. Smaller service projects benefiting other community partners will be available at the same time.
