Roll Up Your Sleeve and Give Blood

Roll Up Your Sleeve and Give Blood

WATE 6 Cares and STAR 102.1 are teaming up again to host "Roll Up Your Sleeve Week."

Special blood donation events January 14-18 will increase blood supplies for East Tennessee.

When donors "roll up their sleeve" and donate, they will not only provide a life-saving pint of blood, they will receive a coupon for a free appetizer at Texas Roadhouse and a chance to win a trip to Graceland. They will also receive a free "Roll Up  Your Sleeve" t-shirt!    

Blood drive locations are all over the WATE 6 viewing area, as well as Medic's two donor centers: 1601 Ailor Avenue, Knoxville, and 11000 Kingston Pike, Farragut.

All donors must be at least 17 years of age, weigh 110 pounds or more (16 year olds weighing 120 pounds or more can donate but must have parental consent) and all donors must have positive identification.

Questions regarding eligibility can be directed to Medic at (865) 524-3074 or www.medicblood.org.
