Tulsa, Okla., March 24, 2001 -- Project Impact and the American Red Cross conducted a Spring Break service event.  Fifteen members of the Tulsa Area Chapter Red Cross youth department assembled and distributed mitigation materials and "starter" disaster kits to 565 residents.  The kits included a canvas bag with a flashlight, basic first aid supplies, hand can-opener, battery-operated radio, and other disaster kit essentials. The recipients of the kits and information were clients of the Red Cross SHARE program, a monthly food distribution program that services low income and elderly residents.  Members of Junior Red Cross Clubs in the Tulsa area collected the supplies for the kits.  One 7-year old Tulsan who wanted to make a contribution asked his friends to bring preparedness supplies to his birthday party in lieu of gifts.  He then donated these supplies to the Red Cross for the disaster kits.   FEMA News Photo
