Families Invited to Learn How to Prepare for Disasters
Your Y has partnered with the American Red Cross to bring the Pillowcase Project to families to ensure that they are ready for any disaster.
The Pillowcase Project is a free 60-minute virtual presentation that teaches children in grades kindergarten through 5th grade about emergencies that may happen in our region, how to cope in stressful situations, and how to be prepared in advance. American Red Cross volunteers lead students through a “Learn, Practice, Share” framework to engage them in disaster preparedness and survival skills. They provide a digital copy of a workbook with activities and teach each child how to fill a pillowcase or backpack with personal items in case of an emergency.
