MEDIC: Dollywood tix offered for blood donors

Dollywood is celebrating frontline workers in August including blood donors. Anyone who makes a successful blood donation will receive a ticket to the park while supplies last. MEDIC will not provide additional incentives during this promotion.   

As a reminder, MEDIC has teamed up with United Way of Greater Knoxville to offer a $5000 mini-grant to the nonprofit that has the most blood product donors this summer. Each donation is worth one point, and the nonprofit with the most points on August 31 will earn the grant.

Mobile Meals earned both the June and July grant funds. All local nonprofits are eligible to win. Donors must complete a voting card or email their donation date, location, and nonprofit name to MEDIC.

Appointments are strongly encouraged, but walk-ins are welcome. MEDIC staff do anticipate a wait for donors during the promotion week. Appointments can be made online at or by calling 865-524-3074.
