Every Twin City Knockers home bout features support for a local charity, and this month the Knockers are supporting Philadelphia Center, Northwest Louisiana’s HIV/AIDS Resource Center. The Philadelphia Center’s mission is to prevent the spread of HIV by educating the public with regard to how HIV is contracted and how its transmission may be avoided. Bre “Breasaurus” Garcia, a Blocker for TCK stated, “I’ve lost two very good friends to complications with the AIDS virus. It makes me feel good to give back to the Philadelphia Center because they are dedicated to providing information on HIV/AIDS education, prevention and awareness.”
