Ribbon campaign to raise AIDS awareness

Jamie Blumrick pins a red ribbon on Spot Coffee co-worker Matt Measer to commemorate “Red Ribbon Week,” an awareness campaign for AIDS education and prevention.   The sale of red ribbons, benefiting Evergreen Health Services, begin on World AIDS Day, Dec.  1, and culminates on Dec. 5 with a Day of Remembrance ceremony at Evergreen Commons, 262 Georgia St.  “We’re all here on a mission to help and treat everyone no matter their status,” said Aaron Pry, director of administrative operations at Evergreen Health Services. In addition to downtown Spot Coffee locations, red ribbons will be available at Buffalo CarShare and Medaille College, as well as the Evergreen Health Services building, 206 S. Elmwood Ave.  By Taylor Gesel and Nate Smith
