Disaster volunteers with the American Red Cross are providing emergency food and clothing to a Madison County family of four — three adults and one child — after an afternoon home fire in the 2600 block of Carolyn Boulevard.
The Red Cross is able to respond quickly when emergencies happen thanks to donors and volunteers. The American Red Cross St. Louis Area Chapter is a member agency of the United Way of Greater St. Louis, which makes significant investments in Red Cross services.
The Red Cross is part of the “All Ready” campaign, an effort among emergency preparedness experts in the bi-state region that focuses on the importance of individual preparedness. The campaign encourages the three critical steps of preparedness: Make a plan, Get a kit, Be informed.
