Resources


Relief Kits

Enabling those affected by floods, hurricanes and tornadoes to begin the overwhelming job of cleaning up.



 

Providing basic necessities to people who have been forced to leave their homes because of human conflict or natural disaster. Hygiene kits are also used as learning tools in personal hygiene, literacy, nutrition, and cooking classes.



 

In some areas, children lack access to books and essential school supplies. Classes are held in inadequate buildings. School kits may be some children’s only educational resource.



 

Building Fire Buckets for families who are returning to destroyed homes to sift through the ashes for their belongings is a great way to be involved in recovery and relief.



 

This kit is for use at those homes that survive a fire but suffer from ash, soot and smoke damage.


Wildfire Sifters are used by survivors to look for possessions that might have not burned and are buried in the ashes. We provide these to survivors along the protective equipment and tools to access a home site.
