American Red Cross is helping five after Thursday's fire in Stamford

The American Red Cross is helping one family – two adults – three children after a fire today on Selleck St., Stamford. The Red Cross provided assistance to meet the family's immediate needs. Responders included: Richard Agatstein, John Klopfenstein and Chelyn Park.

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.
