NATIONAL DONATE LIFE MONTH-NEW ENGLAND- NEW ENGLAND ORGAN BANK CELEBRATES DONATE LIFE MONTH AND DONATE LIFE FLAGS ACROSS AMERICA
"Flags Across America" is a Donate Life America and New England Organ Bank initiative that invites donor hospital and transplant centers, as well as all recovery agencies, to collectively fly the Donate Life flag during April. The goal is to create a visible and unified statement about the importance of becoming an organ donor and the dire need for donors. This initiative is meant to encourage the public to designate donation decisions by registering their wishes in their state donor registries.
Community members are welcome to learn more about organ donation and to register with representatives from the New England Organ Bank at the three hospitals on the following dates:
* Tobey Hospital in Wareham on Thursday, April 16, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. * St. Luke's Hospital in New Bedford on Tuesday, April 21, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. * Charlton Memorial Hospital on Tuesday, April 28, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
