The NonProfit Times -Charities Clearing Out The Garage For Auction Items

The NonProfit Times - The Leading Business Publication For Nonprofit Management: "Charities Clearing Out The Garage For Auction Items

by Mark Hrywna

The American Red Cross (ARC) is cleaning out its closets and having a garage sale of sorts. As part of cost-cutting measures, the ARC is closing a warehouse facility in Lorton, Va., leaving very limited space to store pieces not on display at its Washington, D.C., headquarters. Aside from what was kept, a large portion of the items in storage went to the National Archives, said Carol Robinson, director of creative resources, where the ARC has a permanent agreement to transfer collections."
