Red Cross Helping Displaced Families in Mansfield

Red Cross volunteer offers emotional support

A team of six Metro Atlanta Red Cross disaster volunteers is responding in Mansfield (Newton County) this afternoon following severe weather that destroyed approximately seven houses and damaged more than a dozen others. The Red Cross will help families with their emergency needs for food, shelter, clothing, replacement prescriptions and other essentials, and also provide emotional support for those suffering the loss of homes and belongings.

Red Cross disaster relief is made possible through support from the community. If you would like to help us care for neighbors in need following fires, tornadoes, floods and other incidents, you can make a financial donation online at or by calling 1-800-RedCross.
