When we think about being prepared, there is usually one simple thing that we seem to overlook...our children. In a crisis, our children are hit very hard. The first few days are generally the hardest, that is the time in which most of the waiting is done. There is something that we can do to help our children through this tough time.
Carbon County Emergency Management is donating 200 #10 (10" x 7") cans to be used to put small toys, or activities in for children in case of evacuation or sheltering in place. The LDS Home Storage Center is providing a canner to seal the cans. Price Library will help the kids to make mini-checker sets and a label for the can. Crayons will be donated by 911.
