Red Cross Moves On

The Key Chapter of the American Red Cross in Meridian has a new home. The office has moved to 1820 23rd Avenue.

Officials cut a ribbon Monday to mark the new and larger location.

"A year ago I knew that we needed a larger facility to better serve this community. Our services are growing. Our volunteers are growing. We hope that our staff will soon grow," said executive director Cheri Barry. "And you're going to see things happening with the Red Cross and more services being provided to this community and our seven counties that we support."

Barry said the new location doubles the Red Cross' space and adds needed storage areas.
