Red Cross assisting Mt. Cory family following Friday house fire

The American Red Cross of Hancock County is helping a Findlay family and a Mt. Cory family following fires in their homes.

A Findlay family of four received assistance for clothing and seasonal clothing and comfort kits with personal hygiene items following the fire in their Elm St. home on Thursday evening.   Red Cross Disaster Responders Bill Davis and Karl Gingrich responded to the call for help.

Early Friday morning, Red Cross Disaster Responders Pat Swisher and Karl Gingrich answered a call for assistance at a home fire on N. Main St. in Mt. Cory.  After assessing the immediate needs of the resident, assistance for clothing and seasonal clothing was provided.

The Red Cross will continue to aid both families as needed and assist in long term recovery planning with resources, information, and referrals to partner agencies.
