Red Cross Pillowcase Project Assembly

Red Cross Pillowcase Project 

On September 7, 2018, 
we had the Red Cross come for the Pillowcase Project.    They discussed what Red Cross does in our country and outside of our country to provide assistance.  They explained they help when disasters happen and taught the kids how to be prepared.

During some of the disasters, the Red Cross found people did not have pillowcases in a natural disaster.   The Red Cross taught our students what to do in different situations for earthquakes, fire and such. If the child needs to leave the disaster real quick, they must put items they will need in their pillowcase in advance to quickly grab and carry.  Each of the students in the 3rd-5th grade received a pillowcase and a workbook.  The assembly was sponsored by the Red Cross and Disney.
