The Community Foundation and ShoreCAN Volunteer Center observed the tenth anniversary of 9/11 by hosting a Just In Case Emergency Kit Event September 10th at the MAC Senior Center building. Citizens of all ages volunteered alongside each other while assembling emergency disaster kits designed for older adults and their caregivers. These kits contained important disaster items such as, weather radios, flashlights, dust masks, first aid kits and a special handmade card. In partnership with Meals on Wheels, the emergency kits were distributed to 425 homebound seniors the week of 9/11.
