Idaho Red Cross volunteers are helping 29 people with their most immediate needs following an apartment fire in Nampa this week.
The humanitarian organization helped provide food and lodging for those who were displaced and is working to replace medications and items like eyes glasses and walkers. They are also connecting clients with mental health services and other community resources.
Last year, the Red Cross of Greater Idaho provided food, shelter and support to 708 people following a disaster, most of them home and apartment fires.
