World AIDS Day in Chicago

Eighth graders from a Chicago area elementary school stopped by the World Vision Storehouse to help put together caregiver kits for aids workers that will be sent to Africa. This is Candace Mason Woods preparing one of the finished kits for shipping.

Despite 20 degree weather and snow and ice on the ground over a thousand marchers from World Vision took to the streets of Chicago to support International AIDS Day which took place around the world Friday. The route of the march took the marchers through down town Chicago in the early evening hours. As the marchers made their way past the NBC 5 TV studios they found themselves part of the evening news.
