Mall of Georgia and Town Center at Cobb to host American Red Cross Blood Drives

Metro Atlanta shopping centers invite community to donate blood this Independence Day weekend

Tuesday, June 19, 2018 — Donate blood, save lives!

The American Red Cross will host blood drives at Mall of Georgia and Town Center at Cobb heading into Independence Day on July 2-3 at Mall of Georgia and June 30-July 2 at Town Center at Cobb. Supporters who donate blood at either center 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 donation can save up to three lives!
  • Blood cannot be manufactured – it can only come from generous donors
