BENEFITING: ASSISI FOUNDATION OF MEMPHIS INC
At Ready Shelby, we’re on the front lines of disaster preparedness.
Supported by the Assisi Foundation of Memphis and every municipal mayor in Shelby County, Ready Shelby is a locally driven public awareness campaign and educational outreach nonprofit organization. Its principal motivation is to equip and empower citizens to take proactive, simple steps toward being prepared for an emergency or natural disaster, especially for the first 72 hours.
Ready Shelby works tirelessly throughout Memphis and Shelby County to:
• Educate the public through monthly community events, awareness campaigns, community partnerships and programming
• Advocate to stakeholders (chambers, businesses, government bodies) the importance of supporting Ready Shelby and the impact a disaster will have on our community
• Support first-responder programs and activities and provide critical training and supplies for lifesaving items such as emergency kits and CERT training courses
Please donate to help us provide the necessary tools to better prepare our citizens for a natural or man-made disaster. After all, studies prove that just thinking about an emergency will improve a person’s chance of coming through it positively. So Ready Shelby encourages people to not just think, but act and take personal responsiblity to be READY for your children, aging parents, even pets.
