Blood donations are especially important during summertime, as many regular donors go on vacation or participate in festivities and are unavailable to donate. However, the need for blood to treat illnesses and injuries does not slow down during this time of year.

As many as three lives can be saved each time someone donates blood – and blood donations to Marsh Regional stay local to help people in this region.

Through Wednesday, July 31, all O-negative and O-positive blood donors at mobile drives and collection centers will receive a $10 Food City gift card.

To give blood, donors must be at least 17 years old, weigh 110 pounds or more and be in good health. People with a cold, sore throat, fever, flu or fever blisters or who are taking antibiotics may not donate. Donors should eat a balanced meal before giving blood.

In addition to scheduled blood drives, donors are welcome at Marsh Regional’s collection centers: 111 W. Stone Drive, Suite 300, Kingsport, 2428 Knob Creek Road, Johnson City, and 1996 W. State St., Bristol.

For more information about scheduling a blood drive at a local business, church, school or community organization, please call 423-408-7500, 423-652-0014 or 276-679-4669 or visit www.marshblood.com.
