  Zoo Knoxville and MEDIC Regional Blood Center are teaming up to gather lifesaving blood and help support the zoo’s mission all month. Normally, donors would receive a free t-shirt after their donation. This month, though, MEDIC is letting people choose to opt out of the free t-shirt and donate the cost of it directly to the zoo to support programs like the Tiger Forest. Last year, the partnership boosted blood donations and raised nearly $5,000 for the zoo. MEDIC said these events are helpful because it’s typically more difficult for them to collect blood for local hospital in July and summer months.
