Red Cross bringing jobs to Tucson

Posted: Updated:

The Red Cross is planning a move that will bring hundreds of jobs to the Tucson area.

Today members of the Arizona Blood Services region of the American Red Cross are packing to prepare for the move to a new facility near Palo Verde and Valencia. The new headquarters will include a call center expected to bring in 300 jobs.

"Staff in our call center will be calling potential blood donors and existing blood donors asking them to make an appointment to donate blood and they will also be sending out reminder phone calls to let people know you have an appointment, please don't forget, please come on in," says Debra Deininger of the American Red Cross AZ.

Job postings will start appearing on their website this Summer.
