The Multicultural Affairs Committee (MAC) was developed in response to the growing number of minorities awaiting organ transplants in Gift of Life service area. The group serves as a direct link to the multicultural communities by developing culturally sensitive donor education activities and participating in multicultural presentations, health fairs and other health-related events.

The Multicultural Affairs Coalition is comprised of transplant recipients, living donors, donor family members, transplant candidates, community volunteers and interested individuals working to educate the community about the importance of organ and tissue donation.

Coalition Group Activities Include:

  • Pre-Dash Brunch
  • Health Fairs
  • Home Cook Heroes
  • Clergy Outreach Events
  • Educational Speaking
  • Prayer Breakfasts
