American Red Cross Responds to Two Home Fires on Saturday

The American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter responded to a house fire on the East Side of Green Bay around 5:30am on Saturday, July 11 affecting two adults and three children.

The home was an upper and lower unit. The upper unit we assisted two adults and two children with monetary assistance for clothing and meals. We also provided the family with comfort kits (which include soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, washcloth, comb, facial tissue, deodorant, razors, shaving cream and lotion) and homemade quilts. The family is currently staying with relatives.

In the lower unit, we assisted one teenager with monetary assistance for clothing and meals. She is staying with family.

Four American Red Cross workers were on the scene taking care of the families’ immediate emergency needs. We also provided emergency personnel with water, coffee and snacks on the scene. 

The American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter also responded to another house fire in the town of Green Valley in Shawano County on Saturday morning. A Red Cross Volunteer assisted the family of two adults and two children with monetary assistance for clothing and meals, and provided comfort kits and homemade quilts. The family is staying with neighbors.
