LEVITTOWN, Pa. (CBS) – Nearly 100 residents of a Levittown apartment complex who were displaced by Friday night’s fire may be getting some help, thanks to the American Red Cross and State Representative Frank Farry.
A drop off site is being set up Monday for the community to help the victims.
Judge Renee Hughes, CEO of the American Red Cross of Southeastern Pennsylvania, says displaced residents left with no shoes, no ID, no prescriptions or anything else. She says the drop off will allow the community to help meet the needs of the fire victims.
“On Monday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Walter Miller Elementary School, which is located at 10 Cobalt Ridge Drive in Levittown, we’re going to have a community drop off,” Hughes explains.
She says new or gently used clothing will be accepted as well as toiletries, pet food, diapers and other essentials.
Hughes says the people needing these items range from infants to senior citizens and 35 families have received assistance from the Red Cross.
