2nd Annual Old Skool Outreach

Hi, this is Brandy Rodgers from the Outreach department.

It was a warm and bright afternoon on June 3, 2008 when Brandywine Counseling's Outreach team celebrated its 2nd Annual Old Skool Outreach event. It was a great time of fellowship and outreach as the NEP team and other staff at Brandywine such as our site supervisor James Harrison, and Chris Zebley and Joyce Bunkley who are nurse practitioners that work with HIV positive clients, joined us for the occasion. Last year’s event was such a success that we had to do it again, but this time Bigger and Better.

The NEP team, along with some of the staff at Brandywine Counseling’s HIV prevention programs, walked throughout Wilmington neighborhoods accompanied by some friends and family spreading knowledge about HIV prevention, rapid HIV testing, and ways to join the needle exchange program. We had a nice turn out at the event as the crowd enjoyed music while eating some wonderful BBQ done by Demitrius Bullock of the NEP team before going out into the neighborhood. The normal outreach team, which includes eight, grew to about seventeen people.

We had a great time spreading knowledge and interacting with the community. We would like to thank everyone who came out and showed their support for the event and we hope to see more next year!
