JJ's Legacy decorates Bakersfield trees to encourage organ donation

Malkin's son Jeff passed away in 2009 from a head injury.

"He saved five lives through organ donation, and over 50 lives he enhanced through tissue donation," Malkin said.

The group's mission is educating and inspiring people in Kern County to register as organ and tissue donors. Donor families, recipients, and volunteers tied ribbons around trees up and down Truxtun and Chester Avenues on Monday. Continue reading
