The American Red Cross has partnered with Independence Northwest and Western Connecticut Association for Human Rights (WeCAHR) on a series of virtual classes to prepare families for emergencies. The preparedness classes were offered virtually throughout the month. One class was called Prepare with Pedro and aimed at children ages 5 to 7. The Pillowcase Project was geared toward children 8 to 12 years old. The Be Red Cross Ready was for older children and adults.
