Red Cross Scaling Back On Mobile Donations

The American Red Cross is scaling back their mobile donations efforts in Wichita Falls.

Eight services staff members will be laid off effective December 30th.

After that date, blood collection services will be performed by Red Cross employees from Dallas.

"Most of the time the on-site blood donations are taken to people that came in from Dallas anyway, so its unfortunate that we have to lose employees during the restructure, but the on-site blood services will be done almost exactly the same," said Katrina Farmer, Executive Director Of Wichita Falls Red Cross Chapter.

Red Cross will be focusing more on on-site donations at the Seymour Highway center.
