QUAKE KITS SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM OVERVIEW
We believe that everyone deserves peace of mind. With over 15 years in the preparedness industry, we launched Quake Kits to empower consumers to find comfort and safety without hassle. Our kits are designed not only to provide full survival coverage, but to do so in a manner that is simple and cost effective.
