Just imagine returning home from work or school to find the fire department had responded to your home. Red Cross volunteers had a busy weekend participating in drills and responding to local fires, but on the morning of Monday, March 4, your American Red Cross, was called to respond to a multi-unit fire affecting close to 60 apartments.
Red Cross Disaster Assistance Team (DAT) volunteers provided drinks, snacks and the means to start the residents’ recovery. The American Red Cross opened a shelter at Copperfield Church, 8350 Highway 6 N, Houston, 7709 to help those who may need a place to stay overnight.
Your local American Red Cross helps at these types of fires multiple times a day in our community. But they cannot do it without you. Please visit the American Red Cross-Houston website to learn more about volunteering, and, if possible, offer some financial support to help with this and other types of disasters throughout our community.
