The American Red Cross will host blood drives at Mall of Georgia on May 27-29 from noon-5 p.m. Supporters who donate blood 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.
