Hurricane Ida Fundraiser
We are gathering donations to help children who were affected by Hurricane Ida. These children have endured so much in such a small amount of time: no electricity, loss of home, school cancellations, and so many other adversities with this hurricane. We want to provide them with items to help with the anxieties and stress that come with a natural disaster.
According to the CDC website,
“Experiencing a disaster can cause stress for families. Young children, under 8 years of age, are at particular risk for mental health issues. Some children may develop disorders like anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder after a disaster. Stress and emotional problems affect children’s physical health, quality of life and how they do at home, in school, and in their communities. It is important to keep children mentally and physically safe both during and after a disaster.”
Items we are looking to collect/purchase are baby food, formula, diaper cream/ointments, diapers, and wipes for the infants. For the older children, we are looking to collect/purchase coloring books, small craft kits, puzzle books, color pencils, puzzles, individually wrapped snacks, etc to fill our Brooke’s Kindness Bags.
