Thank You to our Century Center Sponsors

In 2014, the American Red Cross is celebrating 100 years of service in Colorado and Wyoming. As part of our year-long efforts to honor our past and build the foundation for another century of service, the Red Cross Colorado & Wyoming Region is renovating the regional headquarters to create better meeting and training spaces, improve efficiencies and enhance capacity for times of disaster.

The Colorado & Wyoming Regional Headquarters is located at 444 Sherman St., Denver. The project includes renovating the first floor to feature a welcoming reception area, additional meeting space, updated restrooms and a community space open to the public that will improve our formal and informal training capacity. The updated space showcases some of the rich history of the Red Cross and its commitment to serving communities across Colorado. The project also includes updating the second floor Training Room and renovations to establish a more efficient Emergency Operations Room, where Disaster Cycle Services workers can set up a regional response headquarters for Red Cross operations responding to disasters in Colorado and Wyoming. Finally, we are also updating our in-house call-center to allow for eight stations for volunteers to handle overflow calls during disasters.

Work is complete on the first floor space, and the new “American Red Cross Century Center” was officially unveiled the week of Nov. 10.

This capital project could not have been possible without the generous donations of our Century Sponsors:
  • Daniels Fund 
  • The Anschutz Foundation
  • Boettcher Foundation
  • The Adolph Coors Foundation
  • DaVita.
We would also like to extend our gratitude to Turner Construction, Gensler, EON and Artform Designs for their assistance with the project, as well as an enormous thank you to the volunteers on our Archive Committee who have put in many hours delving into the history of the Red Cross in Colorado over the past 100 years and selecting information and artifacts to share that story.
