  • American Red Cross Delivers Pillowcase Project

    Posted by Ashley LaRiviere on 3/8/2023

    On Tuesday, March 7, the American Red Cross delivered its Pillowcase Project educational program to approximately 90 fifth-grade students at Barge-Lincoln Elementary School. This American Red Cross program aims to bring emergency preparedness education to 3rd through 5th graders across the United States.


    Over the 60-minute program, students learned about personal and family preparedness, local hazards (including home fires and wildfires), and basic coping skills. The Pillowcase Project uses a “Learn, Practice, Share” framework to engage in disaster preparedness and survival skills.


    These interlocking concepts allow students to explore the science behind emergency preparedness. Students also learned about how emergencies are experienced in the real world, so that they understand both the environmental causes of natural hazards and what people should do to prepare themselves, their families, and their communities in emergency situations.  Upon completion, students received a sturdy pillowcase in which to build their personal emergency supplies kit.
