[McKinleyville, CA – May 18, 2016] American Red Cross volunteers and staff invite
s all community members in Del Norte and Humboldt counties to an Open House at our new location to enjoy some good food, meet local volunteers and learn more about their Red Cross. The event will take place on Friday, June 10 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. The new Red Cross office is now across from the Arcata/Eureka Airport at 3101 Concorde Drive, Suite H, McKinleyville, CA 95519.
“We are proud of our long history in Humboldt and Del Norte Counties and we continuously look for ways to strengthen our local ties and enhance our services to residents,” said Jeff Baumgartner, Executive Director, American Red Cross of the California Northwest. “The new office provides a clean, friendly, convenient, safe and easily accessible location for volunteers who provide Red Cross services and residents who require those services. We’re now better positioned to work with community partners to serve residents of Del Norte and Humboldt Counties.”
This free event, open to the public and our partners, will provide an opportunity to explore our new facility, meet our outstanding local volunteers and employees, and pick up information on Red Cross services offered to the local community. Food and drinks will be served. There will also be door prizes!
94 percent of the non-profit organization is volunteer-based. For this reason, the Red Cross relies on the compassion, care and support from all of its volunteers and donors. There will be information on the various opportunities to get involved as a Red Cross Volunteer to help our communities prepare for, respond to and recovery from emergencies.
