Pinellas County reached 62 percent organ donor registration rate in July

WTSP

PINELLAS COUNTY -- In July 2016 alone, the Pinellas County Tax Collector's office successfully registered 7,051 organ donors. This brings the rate to 62 percent of all drivers license transactions in Pinellas for the month.

Organ donation is an important service for many local communities, and more than 5,200 Floridians are still waiting life-saving organ transplants.

This service can provide a second chance for its recipients and is made possible due to the generous support of those who designate themselves as donors.

Are you interested in registering as an organ donor? You can either sign up when you renew your drivers license or by contacting Donate Life Florida directly at: 877-357-4273. Continue reading
