Children Ages 9-12 can come play and learn about natural disasters that affect our world today. This game is an educational outreach project for children in elementary schools in the Chico community. It consists of college students working at informational stations on natural disasters. Each station includes an info board and a related interactive game. Children will cycled through the various stations in groups and learned about the various disasters and how to act during and prepare for them.
Do you like to cook? Are you up to the challenge? Bring your best jambalaya and enter to win a First, Second or Third prize! Deadline to sign-up is March 2nd. Please bring 3-5 quarts of Jambalaya, and a crock pot to keep it warm.
The American Red Cross Association is an emergency response organization that helps in times of crisis. One of the goals of the American Red Cross is not only to help after disasters, but also to prevent it. Red Cross has helped thousands with their aide, and now its our turn to help them!
