As part of our club’s charter and to support the community, the club reached out to a local Title 1 elementary school to see how to help the students. I met with the principal, who expressed that the families are desperate for basic first aid kits. The students and their families are unfamiliar with the basic care of scrapes, cuts, and wounds, which, when left untreated, can lead to serious infections and interfere with the learning process.
The principal asked if Hamilton Red Cross Club would be able to organize a school drive to provide the 400 families in need with gauze, bandaids, alcohol swabs, first aid creams, etc. So began Project S.C.A.B. (scrapes, cuts, and burns), an initiative to raise funds and supplies to provide first aid kits to Title 1 elementary schools.
