Fruita Kids Treated to Red Cross Experience
Red Cross workers handed out candy and also provided helpful information about preventing home fires – the most common disaster to which the Red Cross responds.

On Saturday, Oct. 27, about 1,000 children from the Western Slope got a chance to explore a Red Cross Mobile Feeding Vehicle, learn about preventing the most common disaster and sign a thank-you banner to veterans and active military.

The Red Cross was one of about 50 community participants in the “Truck N Treat” event in Fruita on Saturday. Red Cross workers handed out candy and also provided helpful information about preventing home fires – the most common disaster to which the Red Cross responds.

As part of Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces programming, there was also a giant “thank-you” banner for visitors to sign their messages of appreciation to veterans and active members of the military; the banner is an annual Red Cross tradition in Colorado and is displayed on Veterans Day and during military events to showcase public messages of support.
