Terre Haute Red Cross moves to new location

Local News

The Terre Haute office of the Red Cross is moving into its new location in the basement of Meadows Shopping Center on Poplar.

During the move, the Red Cross even donated some furniture they no longer need to Goodwill.

The Red Cross had been housed on 3rd Street for decades, but they decided to downsize to the new location to better serve the community.

“We do things a little differently than we used to do,” Theo Boots, executive director southwest region Red Cross for Indiana said. “For instance, we collect blood, we go to the businesses, we go to the organizations, we go to the churches instead of them coming to our building; and the same thing with our preparedness health and safety education. We’ll go to the business and provide that education, so we don’t need that large of a building.”

Red Cross officials hope to be settled into the new office next week.
