In my project, I am creating basic first aid kits for the homeless survival sacks at Sacred Heart. I will put bandages, antiseptic towlettes, gauze pads, and hand sanitizer into a small ziploc bag. I chose to use ziploc bags because they are lighter than boxes and are easier to carry for the homeless population.
I am doing this project for school and also for personal reasons. I once got an infection from an open wound and I have the means to treat it. The homeless population do not have the means to treat infections so I decided that my first aid kits will be the first step in preventing these infections. I plan on creating a project that can be continued in the survival sack program at Sacred Heart so that the homeless population served by Sacred Heart will continue to have the basic medical supplies.
If I receive the grant, it will completely go towards purchasing the supplies.
