The Pillowcase Project

Learn. Practice. Share.

The 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. Students learn the best ways to stay safe and how to create their own emergency supply kits by packing essentials in a pillowcase for easy transport during a disaster. Students have the opportunity to decorate and personalize their pillowcases and share what they’ve learned with friends and family. The curriculum meets many of the Common Core Standards for grades three to five. The Pillowcase Project is sponsored by Disney. To learn more or to schedule a presentation, call (317) 684-4323 or the Red Cross chapter serving your community.
