Medic Regional Blood Center is proud to team up with the Tennessee Smokies and Chick-fil-A again this year to help increase blood donations throughout the summer. "Medic will give away a Tennessee Smokies t-shirt, a coupon for a free Chick-fil-A sandwich, and each week there will be a drawing for a pair of Smokies home game tickets," reports Christi Fightmaster, public relations.  

Medic Regional Blood Center continues to report an urgent need for O Positive blood.  Donors can give blood seven days a week at Medic's donor center or visit a community blood drive.
