American Red Cross Assisting Family In Marion County After Home Fire

Marion, S.C. August 31, 2022 - American Red Cross disaster-trained volunteers are assisting a family whose home, located on Wallace Cir in Marion, was damaged by a fire last night. The Red Cross is helping two people by providing financial assistance for immediate needs such as food, clothing, and shelter, along with referrals to much needed resources.

The American Red Cross of South Carolina urges everyone to get ready for emergencies, like home fires and other disasters, by making preparedness a priority this September during National Preparedness Month.
“Disasters can happen anywhere, anytime. We urge people to prepare now and be ready if an emergency occurs in their home or in our local community,” said Tony Reid, the Regional Disaster Officer for the Red Cross of South Carolina. “Helping people during disasters is at the heart of our mission and climate change is a serious threat we are all facing. Help keep your loved ones safe — get Red Cross Ready today.”
