MEDIC hosts annual ‘Roll Up Your Sleeve’ blood drive


MEDIC Regional Blood Center is teaming up with WATE 6 On Your Side, Star 102.1 and Food City for the annual Roll Up Your Sleeve blood drive this week.

MEDIC is encouraging people in East Tennessee to roll up their sleeves and give blood as the organization struggles to meet the needs of local hospitals. 

Blood drives will be held at 25 different Food City locations. One donor at each location will receive a $25 Food City gift card and will be entered into another drawing for two tickets to the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. Everyone who donates will receive a MEDIC T-shirt and a coupon for a free appetizer from Texas Roadhouse.

WATE 6 On Your Side is also hosting a drive on Thursday, January 17.
