(Brooklyn, New York - October 2020) --  For neighbors and communities throughout New York City, now is the perfect time to stay informed, educated, and aware when it comes to health, safety, and protection. 

Join Ballin’ 4 Peace as we partner with Housing Works Youth and Prevention Services (HWYPS) to present “Men’s Health Awareness Day” on Saturday, October 17th (11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.) at Kings Manor Museum (150-03 Jamaica Avenue, Jamaica, New York 11432). Along with offering a day of live music, delicious food, and drinks, HWYPS staff members will be on-hand giving out free facemasks, hand sanitizer, totes, earpods, fanny packs, collector cups, personal protection (condoms/lubricant), COVID-19 testing, and information on local clinics and housing.
