Medic Blood Center: Resolve To Become
A Super Donor In 2014

Originally published: 2013-12-31 22:10:31

Medic Regional Blood Center is encouraging people to consider adding blood donation to their New Year's Resolution list.

There are three upcoming opportunities to donate blood here in Greeneville in the coming days:

* Thursday, Jan. 2, at Food City, 515 Asheville Hwy., from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.;

* Monday, Jan. 6, at the Greene County YMCA, 404 Y St., from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and

* Thursday, Jan. 9, at Comcare, 100 Pennsylvania Ave., from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

"If you are a donor, resolve to become a 'Super Donor' this year by giving blood four times in the calendar year," says Christi Fightmaster, Medic spokesperson, in a news release.

"If you have never donated, resolve to give the gift of life-saving blood this year," Fightmaster said

"If everyone who was eligible gave just one more time per year, this community would rarely experience a blood shortage."

Medic is the sole provider of blood for 22 counties and 28 area hospitals in this region, including both Laughlin Memorial and Takoma Regional hospitals in Greeneville.

These hospitals -- and, most importantly, the patients who receive the donated blood -- depend on volunteer donors to meet those needs.

Donors must be at least 17 years of age and weigh at least 110 pounds.

Sixteen-year-olds weighing 120 pounds or more can donate but must have parental consent.

All donors must have a positive ID with them at the time of their donation.
