American Red Cross Pillow Case Project
The American Red Cross and High Voltage teamed up from June through August at the Nora Navarre Library for the Pillowcase Project a free, interactive preparedness program designed for youth ages 8 to 11.
The Pillowcase Project program aims to increase awareness and understanding of natural hazards and teaches safety, emotional coping skills, and 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’ve learned with friends and family.
Funding for this program made possible by Walt Disney World (American Red Cross and Mr. and Mrs. Lyndon Barrois (High Voltage).
