WHAT: Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood (UHPP) is focusing its "Condom Week" outreach efforts by planning four “pub crawl” style events on Valentine's Day weekend. During the weeklong event, four groups of volunteers will distribute 2,000 condoms in Albany, Hudson and Troy. They also will give out safer sex kits, Mardi Gras condom beads and temporary tattoos. Volunteers will invite patrons to play a trivia game about issues of sexuality and sexual health and test patrons’ skills for the right way to put on a condom.
