Y-12 nearly doubles normal blood donations in September
MEDIC’s newest bus was used for September’s mobile blood drive events at Y-12.
More Y-12 employees rolled up their sleeves in September to meet the growing need for blood donations in East Tennessee.
During a typical month, @ MEDIC Regional Blood Center holds one donation event at Y-12 and collects about 70 units of blood. In September, MEDIC requested a second event due to a higher demand for blood in the region. Thanks to Y-12ers generously giving the Gift of Life, MEDIC collected 131 units during the month’s two donation events, which were held in MEDIC buses parked outside New Hope Center. #CNSCares #GiveBlood
