From the Commons News report on the Brooks House Fire:

Where help is available

An outpouring of community support has appeared on iBrattleboro, with users of the online citizen news site offering shelter and support for those displaced.

The Green Mountain Chapter of the American Red Cross and the United Way of Windham County are both accepting donations to assist with relief efforts.

At this time, both organizations say financial donations are most helpful to the current efforts.

Donations can be designated for immediate Red Cross relief efforts (such as emergency shelter or clothing) or long-term needs to be coordinated locally (such as security deposits, furniture, etc.).  Both agencies will accept donations for the immediate Red Cross efforts, and the United Way of Windham County will be the repository for contributions designated for long-term needs.

Mail checks to the American Red Cross Green Mountain Chapter, 81 High St., Brattleboro, VT 05301.  Please specify “Brooks House disaster” in the memo of your check.  Online donations can be made at vermontredcross.org. (sic) [NOTE: THE CORRECT URL SEEMS TO BE http://www.redcrossvtnhuv.org.]

Or, mail checks to United Way of Windham County, 28 Vernon St., Suite 312, Brattleboro, VT 05301.  Please specify “Brooks House disaster” for immediate Red Cross relief efforts or “Brooks House long-term” for the long-term fund in the memo of your check. On-line donations can be made at unitedwaywindham.org.

Those interested in volunteering for the Brooks House disaster relief effort should email contact information to info@unitedwaywindham.org.
