Earlier this month, the American Red Cross filed a WARN notification with the state of Nebraska. The notification concludes that the humanitarian organization will soon be shutting down its Omaha call center. The organization expects 133 jobs to be impacted when the center is ultimately closed on September 29, 2017.
The Omaha location was frequently used to make contact with donors. The organization has similar call centers in Tucson, Arizona and Charlotte, North Carolina. Those call centers will remain open, so donors in the state of Omaha will still receive calls from the organization.
Simultaneously, the organization does not expect the closure to impact the agency’s ability to collect, process or distribute blood products. The American Red Cross was originally founded in May of 1881. The organization is headquartered in Washington, D.C.
