The American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter responded to a house fire that occurred on Monday, March 20, around 7:30am, in Downtown Green Bay affecting seven people.
Eleven American Red Cross Disaster workers assisted at the scene by providing immediate shelter for those displaced at St. Willebrords Church and provided water, coffee and snacks to the 40 emergency personnel.
Volunteers met with each client to assess and assist with their immediate emergency needs. Six of the seven clients were assisted with lodging and the other client had other accommodations. All clients received monetary assistance for clothing, meals and were provided comfort kits (which include soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, washcloth, comb, facial tissue, deodorant, razors, shaving cream and lotion) and homemade quilts. We also assisted some clients with medications and eyeglass needs.
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.
