Medic Regional Blood Center would like to remind the community that the need for blood never takes a vacation or holiday—it is constant! Please plan to roll up your sleeve at the next blood drive in your area. Donors can “Double Their Good Deed” by declining their t-shirt. A monetary donation of that value will be made to Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee equal to nine meals.
All donors the month of December will automatically be registered to win a two night mountain stay (Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge), food certificates and attraction tickets.
• December 19, Blount County’s Sheriff’s Office, 9am- 4pm, Bloodmobile. *All donors register to win a $40 Olive Garden Gift Certificate.
• December 21, Big Lots/Alcoa, 11am- 6pm, Bloodmobile.
• December 21, Blount Memorial Hospital, 6am- 6pm, Auditorium. *All donors register to win a $15 Chili’s gift card or a free appetizer from Marlin and Ray’s.
Donors must be at least 17 years of age, weigh 110 pounds or more (16 year olds weighing at least 120 pounds can donate but must have parental consent) and all donors must have positive identification. Medic is the only blood provider for the greater East Tennessee area and Southeast Kentucky.
