American Red Cross responds to Lubbock apartment fire

Posted:

LUBBOCK, TEXAS (KCBD) - Sunday night the Lubbock Police Department requested American Red Cross assistance to help families impacted by fire.  The fire caused substantial damage to the building effecting 20 units with other units temporarily displaced.  Red Cross staff and volunteers temporarily placed 19 people in local hotels while they wait for permission to return home or make alternative arrangements.

The Red Cross asks for financial assistance to help families, like those affected last night, during times of need.  "It is because of the generosity of the American people that we are able to fulfill our mission" stated CEO, Robin Raney. 

Last year, the local Red Cross chapter responded to over 80 fire calls, helping families immediately begin rebuilding their lives.

Donations are welcome at the South Plains Regional Chapter at 2201 19th Street, Lubbock, Texas 79424, or by calling (806) 765-8534
