March is American Red Cross Month. The key chapter based in Meridian is offering new programs during spring break.
"This year public schools have spring break on different weeks, so we decided to do something for the kids," said Kenya Burton. "We're offering babysitting, pet first aid, a little first aid for kids ages five and eight. We're going to offer it both weeks."
To be involved in the babysitting classes, you must be between the ages of 11 and 15.
