The American Red Cross is assisting a Sargent family after a fire affected their home. According to the press release, two adults are being helped after a fire broke out on Monday, April 13.
Press Release: Disasters such as home fires do not stop during this pandemic. The American Red Cross is still serving those affected by disasters, however, it looks a little different at this time, as we are providing services virtually.
The Red Cross is also providing comfort kits, containing personal care items such as toothbrushes, deodorant, shaving supplies and other items a resident might not have been able to gather in the rush to escape the fire. In addition, a recovery envelope containing information helpful to families recovering from a fire, including tips on cleanup; notification of important contacts; dealing with damaged items and more was provided.
Red Cross caseworkers will follow up with those affected in the coming days to work on a longer-term recovery plan. The Red Cross is able to provide assistance through the generosity of our donors and the commitment of our volunteers.
