American Red Cross Helping Family of Four After Wallingford Fire Early Saturday


Paul Shipman

The American Red Cross is helping a family of four – two adults and two children – after a fire on Chapel Street early Saturday morning. The Red Cross is providing help with emergency housing, food and clothing needs, as well as 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.
