January is busy for Red Cross Volunteers
As we ring in the New Year, “fire season” is well under way in the American Red Cross Greater New York region. As the cold weather kicks in our amazing Red Cross volunteers get busier and busier.
Here is a quick snap shot of our volunteers in action on January 14th when we responded to thirteen emergencies helping more than 70 people. This included a large house fire in Long Beach, Long Island and a fire in a 5 story building on the Grand Concourse in the Bronx.
Our amazing volunteers stayed late into the night making sure these families had a warm place to stay, and the comfort and care they need to begin their road to recovery.
Stay warm everybody and if you see a Red Cross volunteer today please thank them for everything they do to help New Yorkers on these long cold January nights.
