Winter is a time for children to enjoy their favorite holiday traditions – playing in the snow, celebrating around the table, sharing stories with loved ones. This holiday season join the American Red Cross as we travel to a winter wonderland where Mrs. Claus will lead us in a story time. So, gather your children, snuggly blankets, milk and cookies, and tune in to learn how your children can better prepared and cope during emergencies.
The Red Cross is a hosting a special holiday edition of our virtual preparedness education program for elementary school students throughout December. “Prepare with Pedro” (grades K-2) and “Pillowcase Project” (grades 3-5) are interactive programs designed to teach children how to be prepared and take action during emergencies. They will also learn helpful resiliency and coping skills.
These virtual events with Mrs. Claus are approximately an hour in length, free, and open to all! Available in Spanish upon request.
