JEFFERSONVILLE, IN (WAVE) - The American Red Cross showed off its new location in southern Indiana Tuesday.

The center, located at 220 Wall Street, will serve as an operational site to conduct disaster relief and responses that affect southern Indiana communities, and will also be a place for the Red Cross Pet Therapy Team.

American Red Cross Regional CEO Jennifer Adrio said, “We're excited to be part of the downtown area that is really expanding and becoming vibrant. We feel like the Red Cross is a vibrant organization. While we've been around for a long time, we want to be new and hip and exciting to people and this is an opportunity to do that.”

The new center will also serve as a disaster training site and provide resources for other Red Cross mission related activities like Service to Armed Forces.
