Mall of Georgia and Town Center at Cobb to host American Red Cross for blood drives this May

Local malls invite community to donate blood this Memorial Day Weekend

Thursday, May 4, 2017 — Save lives by donating blood! The American Red Cross will host blood drives at Mall of Georgia and Town Center at Cobb from noon-5 p.m. during select dates this May. Supporters who donate blood at either mall will receive a complimentary gift from the American Red Cross (while supplies last)!

Why get involved? Here are some quick facts, courtesy of the American Red Cross:

  • Someone needs blood every two seconds in the U.S.
  • Just one pint of blood can save up to three lives!
  • Approximately 36,000 units of red blood cells are needed in the U.S. every day.
  • Approximately 38 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to donate – yet less than 10 percent actually do!
  • The American Red Cross supplies approximately 40 percent of the nation's blood supply.
