KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — It’s time once again to roll up your sleeve East Tennessee!
WATE 6 On Your Side and Food City are teaming up with MEDIC Regional Blood Center to promote Roll Up Your Sleeve Week, Jan. 10-14. The event coincides with National Blood Donor Month.
MEDIC mobile units will be out across the area collecting blood donations and help restock the blood bank.
All donors will receive a long-sleeve, special edition T-shirt, Salsarita’s coupon, and Texas Roadhouse coupon. All donors at Food City locations will be automatically entered to win drive-specific $25 Food City gift cards. All donors through the week are automatically entered to win a $500 Food City gift card.
Donations are also being accepted at East Tennessee MEDIC Regional locations. Appointments are preferred but walk-ins are still welcomed. Appointments can be made online at www.medicblood.org. Appointments allow MEDIC staff to mitigate wait times.
MEDIC is the primary blood product provider for 24 hospitals in 22 counties including Blount Memorial, Covenant Health System, East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, Tennova Healthcare, and UT Medical Center.
