The American Red Cross is helping a family of two adults and three children with emergency housing, food and clothing needs after a fire late Tuesday night on Fairfield Street in Manchester.
Red Cross volunteers Dave Kemp, Bob Jeram and Pat Jeram responded to assist the family. The children were provided with stuffed animal toys, according to a press release from Red Cross Chief Communication Officer Paul D. Shipman.
The Red Cross is providing comfort kits containing personal care items such as toothbrushes, deodorant, shaving supplies and other items a family might not have been able to gather in the rush to escape the fire.
American Red Cross disaster assistance is free of charge, a gift made possible by generous donations and the work of volunteers. For more information about the Red Cross and how you can help, visit the Red Cross website.
