One friend's eagle scout project was gathering items needed to make 72 hour kits for residents at a home for abused women.
From ready.gov, they define their "disaster kit" as "a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency."
They recommend assembling your kit "well in advance of an emergency.
You may have to evacuate at a moment’s notice and take essentials with you.
You will probably not have time to search for the supplies you need or shop for them."
I think it's important, especially in today's world, to consider becoming more prepared for those unexpected events that are even more likely to happen!
And helping others to be more prepared is even better!
(GREAT activity for Sawyer's first night at scouts!)
