American Red Cross Helping Family of Five After New Britain Fire


Paul Shipman

The American Red Cross is helping a family of five – two adults and three children – with emergency housing, food and clothing needs after a fire earlier today on Tremont Street in New Britain. The Red Cross also provided stuffed toys for the children.

The Red Cross is also providing comfort kits, containing age and gender appropriate 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. Children's kits include a stuffed toy.

American Red Cross disaster assistance is free of charge, a gift made possible by generous donations and the work of volunteers.
