Volunteers from the Mohawk Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross provided immediate emergency aid to six people after a fire Saturday morning on Prospect Street in the City of Oneida.
The Red Cross provided financial assistance for necessities such as shelter, food and clothing to two adults and four children, ages 16, 14, 2, and an infant. Volunteers also offered emotional support and comfort kits containing personal care items and stuffed animals for the children. In the coming days, Red Cross staff and volunteers will remain available to help those affected by the fire as they navigate the road to recovery.
The Red Cross relies on local donors to help families prepare, respond and recover from disasters in the Mohawk Valley.
