August 16, 2010
On Friday, nearly 100 people visiting the Our Daily Bread (ODB) soup kitchen in Pascagoula took the opportunity to undergo free HIV and syphilis testing from the Mississippi Department of Health.
At the Pascagoula site, people who tested also could pick up backpacks filled with goodies including $10 Walmart gift certificates, shampoo, hand sanitizer, and insect repellant. The mobile unit was open from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
