STAMFORD — Local volunteers helped out at the Giving Tuesday emergency kit assembly line at the Americares Headquarters on Tuesday.

Americares staff worked with volunteers, like those from Stamford-based consumer goods company Henkel, to assemble 3,000 emergency kits for disaster survivors in celebration of Giving Tuesday. Each kit contains essential hygiene items that will be stored at the Americares global distribution center and eventually distributed to families displaced by tornadoes, hurricanes, flooding, wildfires and other emergencies worldwide.
