Local News

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – There’s an urgent need for blood donations in our region, but many are wondering how to give while still following social distancing guidelines.

Medic is setting up a drive with those recommendations in mind. The blood center has set up donor booths 6 feet apart and is requiring donors to set up an appointment to donate.

“For anyone, that’s looking to come out and donate and this is the first time it’s a great time to come out and support the community.”

The drive is going on at the Pinnacle at Turkey Creek until April 22, and you can go to medicblood.org to make your appointment.
