Chester was especially hard hit by last week’s severe weather, prompting a call for Red Cross assistance. Red Cross volunteers opened an evacuation center at the Chester fire station.  In addition, the Red Cross arranged for 50 hot meals to be provided to local first responders who were working to reopen roads and to check on area residents.

To help people affected by disasters, a donation can be made to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief.  Your gift enables the Red Cross to prepare for and provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance in response to disasters. Visit, call 802-660-9130, ext. 111, text REDCROSS to 90999, or mail your contribution to American Red Cross, 29 Mansfield Ave., Burlington, VT 05401.
