Fire Response Service

In response to a fire on Myrtle Avenue in August 2019, ABAAT’s team sprung into action. Spearheaded by Co-founder Dannielle Hille, ABAAT was able to provide basic hygiene needs and clothing to 10 of the 11 families in the burned homes within 48 hours of the fire. Taking care of our neighbors in their greatest time of need is an important part of community building so ABAAT has arraigned for the continued acceptance of certain items to provide to families effected by total loss of their homes.

Requirements: The family must suffer a loss of more then 50% or have been identified as in great need by a referring services organization or school.

Please contact ABAAT at info@abaat.org or leave a message with your name and phone number at 518-227-0012 to arrainge a time to drop items off.
