Red Cross aids two after Utica fire
UTICA — Volunteers from the Mohawk Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross provided immediate emergency aid to two people after a fire Sunday afternoon on Dawes Avenue in Utica.
The Red Cross provided financial assistance for necessities such as shelter, food and clothing to one adult and a 17-year-old, who were displaced by the fire.
Volunteers also offered health services, emotional support and comfort kits containing personal care items. 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 the generosity of local donors to help families prepare, respond and recover from disasters in the Mohawk Valley. For information on how to help, visit redcross.org or call 1-800-RED-CROSS.
