Medic Regional Blood Center offers an incentive item that is much more valuable than the t-shirts they are known for.

Medic’s membership program is a safe guard for donors and their IRS dependents. Donors who roll up their sleeve and give blood to Medic, will receive a year’s credit toward their membership.

This membership excludes donors from paying blood collection or processing fees that are associate with transfusion costs.  However, pre-existing conditions are excluded.

“This is a meaningful thank you that we extend to all of our donors for taking the time to think of those in need. Plus, it provides great protection for our donors and their immediate family members,” explains Christi Fightmaster, Medic’s Public Relations Director.

Each donation adds another year’s credit toward an existing membership.  For example, donors who donate twice in 2012 will have membership through 2014.

Donors will also receive a coupon for a free Chick-fil-A sandwich and a chance to win a pair of Tennessee Smokies tickets.

Donors can inquire about their membership at any blood drive location.   Stop by 1601 Ailor Avenue or 11000 Kingston Pike to donate blood or visit a convenient community drive.  Check out the Community Calendar on B3 for upcoming drives.

Donors must be at least 17 years of age, weigh 110 pounds or more (16 year olds weighing 120 pounds or more can donate but must have parental consent) and all donors must have positive identification.
