Red Cross giving away flood clean-up kits in Arcadia and other areas

The American Red Cross of Wisconsin is giving away clean-up kits throughout the state.

One place they can be picked up is at the Arcadia City Hall during regular business hours.

Those displaced by flooding in Arcadia have been able to get food and a place to sleep at the Holy Family Catholic Church.

Pat Griffin has been volunteering at the shelter. She said the kits have a variety of supplies, and they all come conveniently inside of a bucket.

“They have a broom, a mop, a dust pan, they have some soap, and some garbage bags, and some gloves–heavy duty gloves for clean-up–and we also provide a gallon of bleach,” said Griffin.

A location for getting clean-up kits in Black River Falls will be announced Monday.

For an up-to-date list of clean-up kit locations call 2-1-1, or visit the Red Cross of Wisconsin’s Facebook Page.
