MEDIC Regional Blood Center is continuing the annual UT vs. Florida blood drive competition, but this year it takes place ahead of the big game.
The competition runs from September 21–25, although the Vols vs. the Gators game has moved to December 5.
MEDIC and LifeSouth Blood Centers battle each year to see who can collect the most blood and blood-related products. MEDIC won the trophy in 2019 after losing in 2018.
Donors can visit any one of the four donor centers or any community drive to donate. A full list of blood drives, locations, and times is available on the Medic website.
All donors will receive a $10 E-gift card, a special edition T-Shirt, and coupons for Salsarita’s and Texas Roadhouse.
Donations continue to be screened for COVID-19 antibodies through September 30. Donors must wear a mask or face covering, and MEDIC continues to see donors by appointment-only.
