MVC Partners with Organ Donor Community to Share the Gift of Life

MVC Chairman and Chief Administrator Raymond Martinez
TRENTON -- With more than 122,000 people across the country waiting to receive a life-saving organ transplant, the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) has joined with the state’s organ procurement organizations during Donate Life Month to raise awareness and boost the donor rolls.

“Many are not aware that the MVC and other motor vehicle agencies are responsible for 97 percent of all organ donor registrations nationwide,” noted MVC Chairman and Chief Administrator Raymond Martinez. “While we are proud of these numbers, the nearly 4,000 New Jersey residents waiting for an organ transplant cannot afford for us to become complacent.”

Chairman and Chief Administrator Martinez will be participating in several events during April to promote the importance of this life-saving practice, including an appearance at the Liberty Science Center’s “Live from Surgery” Exhibit featuring a live-stream of a kidney transplant operation on April 25. Additionally, he will be traveling to a number of MVC agencies throughout the state to thank staff for their efforts to register new donors. Continue reading
