Get in on the Pillowcase Project

Pillow Case ProjectThe American Red Cross and the Walt Disney Company are partnering to deliver disaster preparedness for 3rd to 5th graders with the Pillowcase Project.

The Pillowcase Project teaches children how to create their own emergency supplies kits by packing essential items in a pillowcase—a common household item—for easy transport during an emergency.

The Red Cross Pioneer Valley Chapter held the Massachusetts debut of the Pillowcase Project on March 7 with a class of nearly 20 children. The class learned how to prepare for emergencies, enhance coping skills and practice what they learned. The children had the opportunity to decorate and personalize pillowcases and were encouraged to share the preparedness skills they learned with their families and their communities.
