Red Cross Helping Three People After New Haven Fire


Paul Shipman

The American Red Cross is helping three people with emergency housing and food needs after an overnight fire on Derby Avenue in New Haven.

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.
