KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- MEDIC wants to make sure they have enough blood on hand for the long 4th of July weekend. So, on Tuesday, they're stepping up efforts to stock up with a sweet deal for donors.
They're setting up special donation locations around town all day. And, everyone who gives will get a FREE pint of Bruster's Ice Cream and a FREE Regal Cinema movie pass that never expires! They'll be handing them out at every donor center on Tuesday.
MEDIC said they're currently low on all blood types. Donors must be at least 17 years of age and weigh more than 110 pounds, 16 year-olds weighing 120 pounds or more can donate but must have parental consent and all donors must have positive identification.
