Free The Pillowcase Project Program on November 8 – Register Now!

??????????????????????????????? The American Red Cross Pillowcase Project is a free interactive preparedness program designed for youth ages 8 to 11. The program aims to increase awareness and understanding of natural hazards, teach safety and emotional coping skills, as well as the importance of personal preparedness. Through instructor-led presentations, students learn the best ways to stay safe and how to create their own emergency supply kits by packing essential items in a pillowcase for easy transport during a disaster. Students also have the opportunity to decorate and personalize their pillowcases and share what they learned with friends and family.  The curriculum meets many of the Common Core State Standards for grades three to five.
