American Red Cross Heart of Missouri Chapter volunteers are assisting a two-member family whose home in Slater burned Friday. Red Cross volunteers from Slater contacted the family Friday, but the clients decided to meet Saturday. The Red Cross provided financial assistance for the family to meet their immediate emergency needs with the purchase of food and clothing. Family members found a temporary home through the generosity of others. They also received comfort kits, which contain personal hygiene items, and referrals to local partner agencies. Volunteers will follow up with the family to check on their recovery.
