Mall of Georgia and Town Center at Cobb to host American Red Cross for holiday blood drives in November and December

Local malls invite community to donate blood to celebrate season of giving

Thursday, November 10, 2016 — Help save lives this holiday season… donate blood! The American Red Cross will host blood drives at Mall of Georgia and Town Center at Cobb from 12-5 p.m. during select dates this November and December. 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!
