    I have clothes for the 7 month old and for a boy up to 4 or 5 years old. The Lord continues to "bless" me and my family everyday; so I'm here to give a helping hand.

    The Uncle and Brother of the Male adult in the house work where I do and I think I understand from him that all of the children are male.

    The Pitt County Chapter, American Red Cross did respond and provided immediate emergency assistance of housing, food and clothing. they average 75 calls a year like this. All services are free, but depend on community support
