Pledge A Kit: There are families across the hurricane belt that may need a little help to prepare for hurricane season.
Last year, non-profit organizations, service groups and individuals from across the country pledged and donated more than 18,000 emergency kits to help their neighbors in need. This year we want to meet or exceed that goal! First click the link below to pledge your kits. Then, use the tips and resources to host a “kit party” and make building your kits a festive affair!
