It was a busy weekend for American Red Cross Disaster Teams in Massachusetts responding to fires across the state. In addition to continued assistance for over 150 Revere residents in the aftermath of the tornado, the Red Cross has responded to 12 fires and one flood across the state since Thursday, July 31st.
Teams of volunteers were sent to Brockton, Cambridge, Dennis, Dorchester, East Boston, Fall River, Framingham, Harvard, Haverhill, Lawrence, Springfield, West Springfield, and Weymouth to assist families following emergencies. In all, the Red Cross helped 90 people (22 families) with funds for emergency needs, including food, clothing, shelter and transportation.
The Red Cross of Massachusetts will continue to follow up with the families affected by these emergencies to further assist with recovery. It’s because of the generosity and continued support of the community that the Red Cross is able to respond to these emergencies and provide assistance to families in need.
As the Red Cross of Massachusetts continues to follow up with the families affected by these emergencies to assist with recovery, the organization is also looking ahead to the coming months. It’s because of the generosity and continued support of the community that the Red Cross is able to respond to these emergencies and provide assistance to families in need.
