"Give to Live Day" will be held Friday, July 27, in the Dyer County Clerk office (located at 115 W. Market St., Dyersburg, Tenn.) to promote organ- and tissue-donor awareness.
County clerks ask and collect an additional $1 from Dyer County residents when they purchase their auto tags throughout the year. These dollars are also collected by county clerks throughout the state of Tennessee. All collected funds are then distributed by the Tennessee County Clerk Organ Donor Awareness Foundation (TCCODAF) to the Mid-South Transplant Foundation (MSTF), the Organ Procurement Organization based in Memphis, and the other OPO in the state, for the purpose of organ-donor awareness education.
"Tennesseans have given generously when renewing vehicle tags and have helped educate more people than ever on the importance of organ donation. It's all about saving lives," Randa Lipman, manager, community outreach, MSTF.
