Where to begin?

By Sara Bruesewitz, Public Support Coordinator

two rivers house fire 2-11-14-2When you wake up the next day following a fire, you experience a flood of emotions. What do we do next? Where will we live? Who is going to help us? It’s really powerful knowing that the Red Cross will be there for you to help you take those next steps. The family in Two Rivers who lost everything to a home fire last night will meet with our trained Casework department to determine what emergency needs they have, what the Red Cross can provide to them, how to work with their insurance company and what other community resources are available to them.

Right now, the family has their emergency needs met – thanks to our wonderful donors & community partners – so instead of overwhelming them with stuff, consider making a donation to Red Cross Disaster Relief so families in the future can receive the same services. The best way to help a disaster victim is through a financial donation to the Red Cross. Financial contributions allow the Red Cross to purchase exactly what is needed for the disaster relief operation – no matter if it is big or small and personal. Thank You!
