The Red Cross helps with housing and food needs.
The American Red Cross is helping three adults with emergency housing and food needs after a fire today on Connecticut Avenue in New Britain. 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.
