MONTGOMERY CITY- Volunteers are assisting a rural Montgomery City family after their home was damaged in a fire early Sunday morning. American Red Cross Heart of Missouri Chapter provided financial assistance to the family, two adults and two children, after a family member called the Red Cross Sunday afternoon.
Two local volunteers responded to the scene on Bent Horseshoe Lane and met with the family. The Red Cross provided immediate emergency needs with the purchase of food and clothing. The family also received Red Cross comfort kits that contained personal hygiene items.
Relatives provided a camper for the family to live in temporarily. Red Cross volunteers will continue to monitor the family's recovery process.
