Knoxville (WVLT) - If your blood type is O+ or A+, MEDIC Regional Blood Center needs your help.
MEDIC has issued an emergency appeal for these two types of blood, which they say are the two most common blood types.
MEDIC says blood donations have decreased since the start of summer; however, the need has increased.
You may not know this, but a single donation can help save three lives!
Donors must be at least 17 years old, weight 110 pounds or more and have positive ID.
All donors will receive a free Tennessee Smokies T-shirt, cholesterol evaluation and a coupon for a free Chick-fil-A Sandwich!
Please call 865-524-3074 or visit medicblood.com for blood drive locations.
