Pillowcase Project to prepare children for disasters

RENSSELAER - Disaster training of a different kind in Rensselaer on Friday.

The pillowcase project, in a partnership with the American Red Cross and the Walt Disney Corporation is designed to help children prepare for storms and other natural disasters.

The class, made up of 3rd through 5th grade students at Van Rensselaer Elementary School, taught different types of disasters and what steps need to be taken to become prepared.

Each child was given a pillowcase to decorate and fill with items like water bottles, flashlights and batteries.
