SISTUHS spent World AIDS Day tabling in the glass foyer giving away free goodie bags to students on Friday.

The goodie bags included items such as condoms, dental dams and lollipops. They also gave away pin-on red ribbons for students to wear. The red bow represents the fight against AIDS.

“The goodie bags we had were given out so quickly that we are doubling the amount we order next year,” said Bailey Clapp, sophomore and treasurer of SISTUHS.

They tabled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday and by noon most of the supplies were gone.

Stephanie LeClair, sophomore and member of SISTUHS, said, “Tabling went really well. We were able to give away all of our goodie bags and all of the free AIDS tests in health services were used as well.”

Last year the club had a movie night and screened the movie Rent which received a large turnout. Similarly, LeClair said this event was a success and no supplies went to waste.

Along with goodie bags the club previously displayed the AIDS Memorial quilt at their table. This year they were unable to attain the quilt for this event.

This was the last SISTUHS club event of the semester.
