The Red Cross has closed its McMinnville office, but the organization is still maintaining an active presence in Warren County, according to representative Jason Warren.“That was basically an unmanned office so there was no reason to still be paying rent on it when nobody was there,” said Warren. “It doesn’t make sense to try and cut costs and pay for an office that isn’t being used.”Warren said the Red Cross continues to serve the needs of local residents and points to the Sunday night house fire in Dibrell as an example of the Red Cross leaping into action.“Being a Red Cross volunteer is a very rewarding experience,” said Warren. “Usually when we come in contact with people, it’s the worst day of their lives and we show up and provide hope.
