Today as our thoughts are with the people of Oklahoma and as we simultaneously watch stories of devastation and of heroism, we are once again faced with the challenge of trying to guide the young people in our lives through trying to comprehend the scope of this tragedy and providing them with the tools to feel empowered to help themselves and others.
Points of Light and generationOn are already in touch with partner organizations operating in Oklahoma, and as specific needs become available, we will pass them along.
For now, we invite you to use this time to broach the topic of emergency preparedness with the youth in your life, specifically focusing on how young people can be the catalysts for their family and communities in getting ready for difficult situations.
Here are some project ideas:
- Black Out Boxes
- First Aid Kits
- Shelter Readiness
- Pets and Disaster Safety
- Seniors and Disaster Safety
