KINGSPORT, Tenn. -

After more than five decades in the same location, the American Red Cross of Northeast Tennessee is moving.

The Red Cross is packing up their location on South Wilcox Drive in Kingsport and moving to 660 Eastern Star Road.

Workers and volunteers are already packing boxes and moving furniture, but it could still be a couple of weeks until the new location is up and running. "We will be totally operational at the new site by the first of the year. There are a lot of pieces that have to come together for that -- we have different stages planned and the majority of our operations will be moved there starting about the December 17," says Executive Director Glenda Bobalik.

If you need assistance from the American Red Cross of Northeast Tennessee their phone number will stay the same even after the move -- they can be reached at (423) 378-8700.
