RI Red Cross assisting two families displaced by
overnight Providence fire
RI Red Cross volunteers responded late last evening to a fire at a two-family home located at 280 Sayles
Street in Providence. Seven adults and three children were displaced from their home and required emergency food and shelter assistance from the RI Red Cross.
The Red Cross of Rhode Island typically spends $1,000 per family of four that it assists. All Red Cross assistance is free,
thanks to contributions from individuals and organizations. The Red Cross is not a government agency and relies on private donations to provide emergency assistance to Rhode Islanders in crisis.
