Calendar

The increased risk in our area associated with coronavirus has greatly impacted our day-to-day lives.  Our concern is first and foremost for the health and well-being of our community, volunteers, transplant recipients and donor families.  If you are scheduled to volunteer or participate in any Gift of Life Donor Program events this month, please note that we are suspending all in-person events and programs through April 30.

We are closely monitoring local, state and federal guidance, and will provide updates via our website, social media and other communication channels about programming after April. However, due to its size, we have already decided to postpone the 25th Annual Donor Dash, originally scheduled for April 19.

We understand and firmly support the need for heightened sensitivity and precautions related to infectious diseases. We join everyone in hoping that COVID-19 will soon be contained, and in wanting to do everything we can to support this. Our thoughts are with everyone who is facing or concerned about illness.

We encourage all to follow precautions and updates from these and other agencies:

April is National Donate Life Month
Apr 1 – Apr 30 all-day

Given the continued heightened sensitivity surrounding COVID-19, all in-person events for National Donate Life Month have been cancelled. Gift of Life will be joining Donate Life America in taking an online approach for April Donate Life Month observances. Please join us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as we honor donors, donor families and caregivers, recipients, registered donors, clinical teams, and those waiting for a second chance at life.

National Donate Life Month (NDLM) was established by Donate Life America and its partnering organizations in 2003. Celebrated in April each year, Donate Life Month features an entire month of local, regional and national activities to help encourage Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors and to celebrate those that have saved lives through the gift of donation.
