While there are numerous activities are taking place in Atlanta to honor World AIDS Day on Dec. 1, Savannah's My Brothaz HOME is also planning to hold its annual candlelight vigil.
The vigil is set for 7 p.m. on Thursday in the parking lot of My Brothaz HOME, 2111 Price St., Savannah, GA. Light refreshments will be provided.
HOME is an acronym for "Helping Our Men Excel." The nonprofit organization was founded in April 2000 and provides HIV prevention and support services to those in Savannah and outlying communities.
The organization will also provide free rapid HIV testing and screenings for STDs from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in June 2010 that Georgia ranked sixth in the nation in the number of reported HIV/AIDS cases. Savannah has the highest number of HIV/AIDS cases outside the metro Atlanta area.
