According to the Red Cross, they are helping 11 adults and 9 children who were affected by the apartment fire in Albany earlier this week.

We've had calls from several people already, asking how they can help. We will have more information very soon, but in the meantime, you can contact the Red Cross.

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and counsels victims of disasters; provides nearly half of the nation's blood supply; teaches lifesaving skills; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization — not a government agency — and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its humanitarian mission.
