Red Cross Helps Family of Seven After Winsted Fire

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

WINSTED, CONN., November 3, 2014 – The American Red Cross is helping a family of seven people – two adults and five children – with emergency housing, food and clothing needs after a Sunday fire on Perkins Street in Winsted. Red Cross volunteers Gabriel Gillotti, Jon Seaman and John Lennon responded to assist the family. The team also provided blankets and snacks to the family at the scene of the fire.

The Red Cross is also providing comfort kits containing 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. 

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