The WAFF 48 Road to Recovery Blood Drive commemorates the one year anniversary of the deadly April 27, 2012 tornado outbreak that left a trail of destruction across the northern half of Alabama. Donors are encouraged to take the opportunity to donate in honor of someone who was affected by the storms, and to help others in need of blood now as the summer season approaches.

All presenting volunteer donors at the WAFF 48 Road to Recovery Blood Drive will receive a T-shirt, a Chick-Fil-A coupon, plus chances to win Huntsville Stars tickets and Monaco Movie tickets.

What's more exciting?! All presenting donors for the months of April, May, and June are entered in the "Spring into Giving" grand prize drawing. Three lucky presenting donors will be selected at random to receive a $1,000 gift card.

Did you know? One pint of blood can save up to three lives. Every two seconds, someone needs a blood transfusion. Blood can't be manufactured; it can only come from volunteer donors.

Get ready for your donation. Drink plenty of fluids. Wear something comfortable. Eat iron rich foods. Bring a list of medications you are taking, your ID, and friends.
