MEDIC teaming up with Knoxville Ice Bears for blood drive


MEDIC Regional Blood Center is teaming up with the Knoxville Ice Bears tonight to hold a blood drive.

We’re told all blood types are needed but O-negative donors are especially encouraged to give as there is an increased need for that specific blood type at the moment.

Consider giving ahead of the Ice Bears game against the Quad City Storm on Thursday. 

The blood drive will run Thursday 1-7:30 p.m. before the game starts at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum.

We’re told all donors will get a free t-shirt.
