KNOXVILLE (WATE) — East Tennesseans can receive free admission into Zoo Knoxville when helping people in need.

MEDIC Regional Blood Center and the zoo are encouraging people to participate in blood drives during July.

When a blood donor decides to not receive a MEDIC t-shirt after their donation, the organization will donate the cost of the shirt to the zoo. The money will help the zoo’s conservation programs. Zoo Knoxville received almost $5,000 from the program last year.

Donors can receive free admission if they donate on July 6. Also, donors will receive a free sandwich from Chick-fil-A and a free appetizer from Texas Roadhouse.
