MEDIC Regional Blood Center is offering a variety of incentives and opportunities to donate blood and blood-related products next week and through the holidays. 

For the month of December, while supplies last, each donor will receive a pair of holiday socks as well as a Texas Roadhouse appetizer coupon.

Donors will also be treated to the holiday socks, Chic-fil-A coupon (to participating stores) and the Texas Roadhouse coupon.

Twas’ the Pint Before Christmas will take place on the 20th and 21st and donors will receive a Ski Pass for Ober Gatlinburg, special holiday-themed long-sleeve shirt and a coupon for Texas Roadhouse.

During the week of Christmas, donors will receive a movie ticket and their choice of the holiday socks or the holiday-themed shirt (while supplies last) as well as the Texas Roadhouse appetizer coupon.

MEDIC donor centers will close at 2 PM on Christmas Eve and will be closed all day on Christmas Day. MEDIC will resume regular hours on the 26th.
