KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- With Labor Day fast approaching, MEDIC is racing to stock up on donations ahead of the holiday.
“Medic’s facility is closed on Labor Day which means no collections coming in for our area hospitals, however, shipments will still go out to area hospitals,” explains Christi Fightmaster.
To encourage people to come out and help save lives, MEDIC is hosting Tailgate Parties around Knoxville on Thursday. Everyone who donates will get a Vols "Rise to the Top" game day t-shirt.
They will also receive a free Regal Cinema movie pass.
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.
