Note: MEDIC is requiring all donors to wear a mask or face covering.
If a donor does not have a mask or face covering, MEDIC will provide

Appointments are preferred for all donors and can be made to donate
whole blood online at www.medicblood.org using the donate link or by
calling 865-521-2658. There is limited availability for walk-in donors.
Appointments are required for Platelet and COVID Convalescent
Plasma donations. Appointments can also be made by calling 865-

WHY: MEDIC Regional Blood Center is celebrating the late Coach Pat
Summitt by hosting a special week each year. MEDIC will donate $5
per donor to the Pat Summitt Foundation.

As a reminder, the blood, platelets, and plasma on the shelves
now is what would be used in a trauma event and it takes three
days for donated blood to be processed and ready for
distribution.

Additionally, MEDIC is not affiliated with American Red Cross in
any way. Any products donated through ARC do not stay in our
area – only products donated through MEDIC help your
neighbors.

OTHER: Donors will receive a special edition We Back Pat shirt and a Texas Roadhouse Appetizer coupon.
