The American Red Cross of the Chesapeake Region was on the scene this week of a residential fire that displaced a family in Helen, Maryland. The fire happened on November 14 on the 38000 block of Foley Mattingly Road. Local Red Cross volunteers provided financial assistance for the family to purchase food and warm clothing.
