The American Red Cross and other members of the 3DayOK Partnership encourage you to pick up your free copy of the March edition of Family Times magazine that’s available on magazine stands at several businesses throughout Central New York.

The magazine features an insert of the 3DayOK coloring and activity book in both English and Spanish! 3DayOK aims to educate residents from Onondaga County and surrounding areas on how to be self-reliant during the first three days of a large-scale emergency.

“With the help of our partners at Eric Mower + Associates, we have developed very creative materials such as the 3DayOK coloring and activity book so we are able to connect with every demographic in all corners of Onondaga County and beyond,” said Rosie Taravella, Chief Executive Officer of the American Red Cross Western & Central New York Region. “We’d also like to thank Bill Brod, the publisher of Family Times Magazine and the Syracuse New Times newspaper, for allowing us to insert the coloring and activity book in the magazine and for offering his publishing expertise and creative guidance.”
