Organ/Tissue Donation Campaign focusing on registration at Driver Services facilities

Herscher Pilot

Secretary of State Jesse White kicked off the state’s organ/tissue donor campaign today as part of a statewide effort to encourage registration and awareness at all 138 Driver Services facilities.

“Since many registrations happen at our facilities, we want to be sure that people are informed when making the decision to give the gift of life,” said White. “There are many myths that make some people fearful about donation and we want to dispel those concerns.”

During the campaign organ/tissue donor staff will be on-site at a number of facilities to answer questions regarding donation. Countertop displays of local recipients and donor families will be featured at various Driver Services facilities so that patrons can see how organ/tissue donation impacts their community. In addition, facility personnel will receive additional training on organ/tissue donation in order to discuss registration with patrons.

April is National Donate Life Month. White will attend events at facilities, hospitals and other venues throughout Illinois to encourage donation. Organizations will be working together to promote donor awareness throughout the state. Continue reading
