Wyoming Red Cross Branches Stay Open

Cheyenne, WY – Volunteer help and an outpouring of donations have kept all but one of Wyoming's local Red Cross branches open. The Red Cross announced last summer that budget constraints would force all the Wyoming branches to close except the Cheyenne headquarters. The Sheridan, Lander and Rawlins branches are staying open with help from waived rent. And increased donations have kept open the branches in Laramie, Jackson, Worland, Casper, Gillette and Douglas. The exception is the office in Green River, which was closed. But it has been moved to an employee's home and continues to provide many of the services it has in the past.
