BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- The Bridgeport Rescue Mission is offering assistance to those affected by the New Year’s Eve fire in Bridgeport.

The condominium fire displaced more than 100 residents, leaving them with little more than the clothes on their backs.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who have lost their homes in this tragic fire,” said the mission's Executive Director Terry Wilcox. “It’s times like these when we rely on our community to come together and help one another. Bridgeport Rescue Mission is here and ready to assist our neighbors in need.”

There will be a winter coat and clothing distribution for women and children from 1:30-3:30 p.m. today and for men from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Thursday at the mission's main campus, 1088 Fairfield Ave. Priority will be given to victims of the New Year’s Eve fire.
