ATLANTA -- Two local malls will open their doors this Labor Day weekend for residents to donate blood.
People who want to donate blood can head over to the Mall of Georgia or Town Center Mall to donate and receive their free Red Cross Travel Mug.
According to the American Red Cross:
- Some needs blood every two seconds
- One pint of blood can save up to three lives.
- And Type O is the most requested by hospitals.
The Mall of Georgia is located at 3333 Buford Drive in Buford. Town Center at Cobb is located at 400 Ernest W. Barrett Pawkway in Kennesaw.
The drives will be held the weekend of September 1-3. Both drives begin at noon and will end around 5:00 p.m.
