The American Red Cross Announces Fourth Annual Lori Dunham Gordon Memorial Blood Drive

(SAVANNAH, GA) On Saturday, April 30, The American Red Cross will host the fourth annual Lori Dunham Gordon Memorial Blood Drive at the Savannah Mall, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The blood drive will be located on the lower level of the Savannah Mall, near Center Court between the Stuff Store and GNC. Donors will be entered to win several giveaways. This year’s goal for the drive is 25 units. Appointments are encouraged at redcrossblood.org, searching the Sponsor Code SAVMall.

According to The American Red Cross, every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. One donation can help save the lives of up to three people. Although an estimated 38% of the U.S. population is eligible to donate, less than 10% actually do each year.

“Blood donors play an integral role in the delivery of modern healthcare,” said Katie Rudder, American Red Cross Donor Recruitment Representative. “Many life-saving medical treatments and procedures involve blood transfusions and would not be possible without a safe and reliable blood supply.”

To donate, individuals must be 17 years or older, and weigh at least 110 pounds. It is suggested that donors drink plenty of fluids, wear clothing with sleeves that can easily be rolled up, and bring a list of medications that may be in their system.

ABOUT THE AMERICAN RED CROSS BLOOD PROGRAM
Started in 1940, under the leadership of Dr. Charles Drew, the American Red Cross supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood supply, and provides blood for patients in approximately 2,700 hospitals across the U.S. The Red Cross makes blood available to any patient who needs it — patients are not required to find donors to replace the blood they use (a practice common in Europe and some U.S. blood banks) allowing the patient and their family to focus on recovery. Eighty percent of the blood donations given to the Red Cross are collected at mobile blood drives set up at community organizations, companies, high schools, colleges, places of worship or military installations. The remaining 20 percent are collected at fixed Red Cross donor centers. The American Red Cross works with more than 50,000 blood drive sponsors each year to hold more than 200,000 blood drives, providing convenient locations for people to give blood.

The Savannah Mall Hosted Caring Easter Bunny For Children with Different Abilities

(SAVANNAH, GA) The Caring Bunny greeted families at the lower level of Center Court in the Savannah Mall, located at 14045 Abercorn St. With an atmosphere free from bright, flashing lights, or high-energy music, all children with different abilities were invited to meet Caring Bunny at this free event.

“We wanted to offer a chance for children with different abilities to meet with an Easter icon,” said Phil McConnell, Savannah Mall’s general manager. “Savannah Mall’s Caring Bunny greets children in a calm environment, in an effort to make the Easter Bunny experience enjoyable for everyone.”

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s most recent data suggests an average of one in 110 children have an autism spectrum disorder. Autistic children’s senses can be oversensitive or under-developed, which affects how they experience different environments, making background noises unbearably loud or confusing. This can cause anxiety or even physical pain. For more information on the CDC’s information on autism, visit http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/autism/features/counting-autism.html

During their visit with the Caring Bunny, families were be given a 5 x 7 photograph from the visit, and a complimentary ride on the children’s train. For more information, visit www.savannahmall.com
