The Pillowcase Project, sponsored by Disney, is a preparedness education program for grades 3 – 5 that teaches students about personal and family preparedness and safety skills, local hazards, and basic coping skills. Red Cross volunteers lead students through a “learn, practice, share” framework to engage them in disaster preparedness and survival skills. Upon completion, students receive a sturdy pillowcase in which to build their personal emergency supplies kit.
Available in 40 and 60 minute formats, this presentation is perfect for schools, after-school programs, Girl and Boy Scout troop meetings, and more. Presentations are customized to focus on a hazard that is important and relevant to the local community.
