This weekend the American Red Cross' booth at Big Hat Days was a big hit! With the help of 50 fabulous volunteers, and sponsorship from Pacific Gas and Electric and State Farm, the Red Cross taught over 1,000 visitors how to build their own emergency kits, make emergency evacuation plans, create emergency kits for their pets and learn how to save a life by performing hands-only CPR.
Everyone we spoke to was incredibly eager to start preparing their own families and was excited about the free services that Red Cross offers. We were even able to schedule several preparedness presentations to schools and community organizations!
A big shout out to all my wonderful volunteers who came out to help and my teammates, Alex and Sandra, for helping me make this event a success. Below are some fun pictures from our event. Enjoy!
