They are not the ones putting out the actual fires, but your generosity is helping the American Red Cross of Wisconsin put out the personal flare-ups for individuals long after firefighters clear the scene. Wednesday’s apartment fire in Sturgeon was one of the latest opportunities for the organization to help in a time of need. Along with their community partners, the Red Cross helps with temporary housing, meals, and more until they can get the displaced back on their feet. The organization has already helped 140 residents across northeastern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan with an average of two home fires daily. American Red Cross of Wisconsin Communications Director Justin Kern says the start of winter weather is always their busiest time.
Kern thanks the community for their support, whether through donations to the American Red Cross or volunteering to be there for their neighbors in times of need.
