During the Mosquito Fire, Glenn Lodwig, Jr. stayed at the Red Cross shelter at Sierra College in Rocklin for more than 11 days and says he is thankful for the support.
“It’s been charitable and kind.”
But – as the saying goes, “There’s no place like home,” Glenn says.
Glenn says if he had to pay for shelter at a hotel he would have been out of money in just days, but the Red Cross shelter at Sierra College allowed him to continue his life until the evacuation order lifts.
“Everything went smooth. There were meals, coffee – I could take a shower and get to work every day,” Glenn says.
As Glenn and others like him transition back to home, it is vital to remember that the Red Cross is there for you every day for every disaster – large or small.
We will be with these evacuees as they make their way back, but easiest way to help people like those affected by the wildfires in California is simply to give a donation. Call 1-800-RED-CROSS to find out more.
