KSAT12 to host Donate Life Texas phone bank

KSAT 12

The need for life saving transplants is great, and on Wednesday, July 27th KSAT Community and partners Security Service Federal Credit Union, University Health Systems and Corner Store have teamed up with the Texas Organ Sharing Alliance to ask for your help in the fight to save lives by joining the registry. KSAT12 will be hosting the “Donate Life Texas Phone Bank” from noon to 7p.m. with volunteers from the Texas Organ Sharing Alliance onsite answering your calls.

According to the Texas Organ Sharing Alliance more than 100,000 individuals are waiting for organs in the U.S. and over 11,000 of those are from Texas. A new patient is added to that list about every 12 minutes and 8,000 of these patients will die. Just one donation can save up to 8 lives and help transplant recipients by restoring vision and improve their lives in ways other synthetic products or materials cannot. You can also help by making a monetary donation.

Simply put, donation makes lifesaving transplants possible. Help save lives and join the registry today at www.DonateLifeTexas.org/KSAT or find interactive ways to share your Donate Life story if you are already registered. For information about Donate Life Texas visit their website at https://www.donatelifetexas.org/
