Red Cross Flood Relief Headquarters Relocates

December 7, 2007

StrategyToday, the American Red Cross headquarters for flood relief in Western Washington moved to Tumwater, Wash. The State of Washington generously donated space at its printing facility on New Market Boulevard to accommodate more than 400 volunteers, dozens of vehicles and pallets of relief supplies. From here, the Red Cross will launch its Emergency Response Vehicles, delivering meals to emergency crews and those cleaning up their homes as well as dozens of outreach teams that will visit with individuals and families to help them begin the recovery process.
