The American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter responded a house fire in Ashwaubenon around 7:30pm on Saturday, November 27. The fire displaced two adults from their home.

Two American Red Cross Disaster workers assisted the family based upon their immediate emergency needs. We provided the family with hotel stay, monetary assistance for clothing and food. We also provided comfort kits (which include soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, washcloth, comb, facial tissue, deodorant, razors, shaving cream and lotion) and homemade quilts.

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 for local disaster relief.
