The Virtual Pillowcase Project: Emergency Preparedness Program for Children

The American Red Cross and will be teaming up with Senator Weik to co-host an event that teaches children emergency preparedness. The Virtual Pillowcase Project is designed for youth in grades 3-5 through a 40 minute interactive presentation. The program offers free education in personal and family preparedness for region-specific hazards. 

All attendees will receive instructions on how to design a pillowcase kit, starting with a regular pillowcase where students can use their creativity while home; how to build a personal preparedness kit; and a digital workbook filled with a variety of preparedness and safety resources.

After the presentation, children have 10 minutes to complete a 5-question survey to capture how students understand the information.
