American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter Responds to a House Fire in Oconto County

The American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter responded to a house fire in the town of Abrams around 8am on Friday, January 29. The fire displaced one adult.

Three American Red Cross Disaster workers assisted the adult with lodging, monetary assistance for clothing and food. We also provided the client with a comfort kit (which include soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, washcloth, comb, facial tissue, deodorant, razors, shaving cream and lotion) and a homemade quilt.

Red Cross disaster assistance is free and is made possible by community donations. You can help individuals of this disaster and others by making a financial gift to the American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter’s local disaster relief fund. For information call the Lakeland Chapter at 920-468-8535 or visit www.arclakeland.org.
