Red Cross Announces Closure of Twin Falls Office
The American Red Cross has announced it is closing its Twin Falls office. Red Cross officials say the national charity organization is trying to save money without cutting services. Two offices will be left in the state, one in Boise and one in Idaho Falls according to Red Cross spokesperson Anna Fernandez-Gevaert. She said the closings will probably happen within the next couple months. Red Cross offices nationwide have been closing over the past few months as the organization restructures. Red Cross will continue to offer the same services in the Magic Valley as it does now, just not from a physical office. Officials say that disaster action teams are not connected to buildings and are as committed and as able to respond to any disasters in Twin Falls as before.
