American Red Cross open house
The American Red Cross held an information session slash barbecue yesterday at its Meridian office.
The effort was to recruit local volunteers.
The red cross says volunteers are needed in the east central Mississippi area to assist with disaster services, operations and administration, and services for armed forces.
All volunteers are trained in the areas they choose to serve. For more information on how to become a volunteer, contact the local office at 601-485-5151.
