Red Cross is helping three families after fire on Kent Road in New Milford

The American Red Cross is helping three families – four adults after a fire yesterday on Kent Road, New Milford. The Red Cross provided assistance to meet the families' immediate needs. Responders included: Arthur Hopkins, Bert Goff and Steven Chen.

The Red Cross also provided a recovery envelope containing information helpful to families recovering from a fire, including tips on cleanup; notification of important contacts; dealing with damaged items and more. The Red Cross is also providing comfort kits containing personal care items such as deodorant, toothbrushes, shaving supplies and other items a resident might need when suddenly displaced from their home by a fire.

Those affected will connect with Red Cross caseworkers in the coming days to work on a longer-term recovery plan. The Red Cross is able to provide assistance through the generosity of our donors and commitment of our volunteers.
