Verizon wants kids to be weather aware and prepared.
The telecommunications company is giving away disaster relief kits to storm victims along with The Salvation Army.
Workers spent the day Tuesday assembling hundreds of the kits. They include essential items such as tissues, flashlights and bandages – as well as special messages for the kids.
"We've had a great reaction from all of our community partners who we've donated items to in the past," said Samantha Yakal-Kremski of the Verizon Foundation. "We're excited to have our employees share in this mission and be a part of these efforts."
The items will be passed out over the next few weeks at the Verizon call center at Huntsville's Research Park.
Verizon officials said they are piloting the program here in Huntsville as well as in New Jersey.
The group's goal was to complete 450 disaster relief kits by the end of the day.
