American Red Cross

A Sneak Peek of Building…

Yesterday, we invited the media for a sneak preview of our almost completed new Chapter building. We are counting down the days until move in and are very excited to soon be opening our doors to the public at the new Chapter House!!

Below are some exerts from the Tallahassee Democrat or click here to see the video:

Workers from Culpepper Construction were putting the finishing touches on the new Capital Area Red Cross headquarters Thursday as the chapter’s staff toured the new facility. The move-in date is sometime next month with a grand opening for the 20,000 square-foot building in January.
“You could fit the old building into the meeting room,” Geri Eaton, chairman of the building committee, said of the chapter’s Office Plaza Drive location.”This is a giant step up from where we were,” Eaton said.
Tallahassee was one of four locations chosen by the Red Cross to open a new headquarters. Other locations were in Baton Rouge, New Orleans and Mobile. The building, with expanded classrooms and Emergency Operations Center, was financed with money from the Kuwaiti Red Crescent Society.

“We are excited to be able to have this facility in Tallahassee,” Eaton said. “The capabilities are tremendous compared to what they were.”
