Community

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Beginning Monday, volunteers will have the opportunity to roll up a sleeve to save lives.

Roll Up Your Sleeve donor t-shirt

WATE 6 On Your Side, MEDIC Regional Blood Center, and Food City are teaming up to host the annual Roll Up Your Sleeve week blood drive. Blood donations will be taken at dozens of Food City locations across the region. Supplies are critically low at MEDIC following the holidays, and your donations mean more lives saved.

Donors will receive a long-sleeve T-shirt, a $5 Salsarita’s coupon, and a Texas Roadhouse appetizer coupon. Donors are also automatically entered for a chance to win daily $50 Food City gift card drawings as well as the grand prize $500 Food City gift card drawing.  

Appointments are encouraged and can be made online at www.medicblood.org or by calling 865-524-3074. MEDIC is requiring all donors to wear a mask or face covering. One will be provided if needed.
