A Camden County family is receiving American Red Cross Heart of Missouri Chapter assistance after a fire destroyed their home.
The family, two adults and two children, ages 5 and 10, lost their home July 17, but they were not initially aware of Red Cross assistance.
A family member called the Red Cross Saturday and two Camden County volunteers dispatched to help the clients, who lived on Moulder Drive in Macks Creek.
The volunteers met with the family and provided financial resources for them to meet their immediate emergency needs with the purchase of food, clothing and shoes. Volunteers also provided the family with comfort kits, which contain personal hygiene items, and a referral to a local agency.
The family is staying with relatives.
