Critical Need for O Negative Blood

All donors receive a $10 e-gift card to use at over 100 organizations. The cards are sent via email within 48 hours of donating. Donors also receive their choice of MEDIC shirt and a Texas Roadhouse coupon. 

MEDIC currently has a critical inventory of O Negative blood. Eligible O Negative Donors are encouraged to donate as soon as possible. 

MEDIC has seen fewer donors during the month of December while seeing a steady or increased usage of blood products.

As a reminder, the blood on the shelves now is what would be used in a trauma event and it takes three days for donated blood to be processed and ready for distribution.
