American Red Cross Assists Family of Seven Displaced by a Home Fire

The American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter responded to a house fire on the West Side of Green Bay around 2:00am on Thursday, August 27. The fire displaced a family of seven; four adults and three individuals under the age of 18.

Three American Red Cross Disaster workers assisted the family based upon immediate emergency need with lodging, monetary assistance for clothing and meals. We also provided the family with comfort kits (which include soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, washcloth, comb, facial tissue, deodorant, razors, shaving cream and lotion) and homemade quilts.

Red Cross disaster assistance is free and is made possible by community donations. You can help individuals of this disaster and others by making a financial gift to the American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter’s local disaster relief fund. For information call the Lakeland Chapter at 920-468-8535 or visit www.arclakeland.org.

    If ever a person wanted to make a difference he could by becoming a volunteer. Be part of an organization like the American Red Cross and help to make this country great.
