Fourth of July Weekend Busy for Red Cross Volunteers

Local Red Cross disaster volunteers responded to a duplex fire located at the 200 block of Lake Louise Drive SW in Lakewood this weekend. The American Red Cross Mount Rainier Chapter provided immediate emergency assistance for the individuals displaced by the fire. During the past Fourth of July weekend, Red Cross volunteers responded to a total of five residential fires and helped more than 11 people. Red Cross disaster relief provides for disaster-caused needs such as temporary shelter, groceries, clothing, medication replacement and emotional support for local families impacted by disasters.

All American Red Cross disaster assistance is free, made possible by the voluntary donations of time and money from the American people. You can help the victims of recent and future disasters in our community by making a financial gift to the American Red Cross Mount Rainier Chapter. Your gift enables the Red Cross to provide temporary shelter, food, emotional support, medication replacement, and other assistance to disaster victims. Your contribution to the American Red Cross Mount Rainier Chapter will ensure that financial resources will be immediately available to provide relief efforts when a disaster strikes.
