The Allstate Foundation and Points of Light Disaster Preparedness Tour and Education CampaignSaturday, June 6, 1pm-4pm - The Mall at Wellington Green, 10300 West Forest Hill Boulevard, Wellington

The Allstate Foundation and Points of Light are bringing their 14-city disaster preparation tour and education campaign to Wellington, Florida, on Saturday, June 6. Research shows 85 percent of Americans are unprepared for disaster and nearly half lack emergency supplies for use in the event of a disaster. Community volunteers and Allstate agents will work side-by-side to help hundreds of South Florida area residents build a free disaster starter kit they can use to keep safe in the event of a disaster or unforeseen emergency. The free kits include a hand-crank flashlight, first aid kit, whistles and other items proven to keep people safe and prepared. This event will also help educate residents on the importance of preparedness.
