The Red Cross is helping with emergency housing, food and clothing needs.

HARTFORD, CONN., December 29, 2014 – The American Red Cross is helping 11 people – nine adults and two children in four families – after a fire earlier today on Albany Avenue in Hartford.

The Red Cross is providing each of the families help with emergency housing, food and clothing needs, as well as stuffed animal toys for the children.

Red Cross team members Ginger Flynn, Ginny Brezza, Pat Welch and Pat Calcinari assisted the residents.

The Red Cross is also providing comfort kits containing personal care items such as toothbrushes, deodorant, shaving supplies and other items a resident might not have been able to gather in the rush to escape the fire.

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