PA Heartland ARC Notes

RED CROSS has Busy Weekend 

Red Cross volunteers from the PA Heartland Chapter responded to four separate fires over the weekend.  On Friday, volunteers responded to a single family fire in Mahaffey providing assistance the family including food, clothing, and emergency shelter.  On Saturday, volunteers were on the scene of the fire that destroyed the Punxsy Hotel providing canteen for emergency response personnel.  On Sunday, volunteers responded to two single family fires, one in Curwensville and the other in Grampian.  In all the Red Cross is working to aid fourteen people in the recovery process from this past weekend’s fires. 

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation’s blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization — not a government agency — and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
