Local Red Cross chapter changing name
Thursday, March 1, 2012
Changing the name of the American Red Cross Capital Area Chapter to the Heart of Missouri Chapter will be more representative of the 21 counties receiving Red Cross services, officials said Thursday.
“We cover 21 counties that go from Carroll County to Dent County and from Saline County to Montgomery County. I think when people hear the word capital, they immediately think of Jefferson City. There was a point in time when the Capital Area really did represent that particular area,” said Dave Griffith, executive director.
