Work begins on Red Cross center in North Charleston

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Officials with the Red Cross and North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey broke ground on a new building Wednesday morning.

The move has been in the works for the last four years and the Red Cross hopes to move into the new facility on 2424 City Hall Lane. The facility will have everything from more office space to work stations.

There will also be more classrooms for health and safety classes, and life saving skills classes the Red Cross teaches every day.

Something new will be one on one rooms where people can deal with emotional situations in a private setting.

The Red Cross serves about 3.3 million people in 35 counties. The new facility will make it easier and more efficient for the Red Cross to serve their clients needs.

The building is expected to be complete in November and the Red Cross plans on moving in to the building in December.
