Organ Donor Enrollment Day was Oct. 7. Started by LiveOnNY in 2015, this initiative is “committed to bringing hope to the nearly 10,000 New Yorkers currently waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant. We do this by educating communities on the importance of organ donation and by encouraging willing individuals to sign up as registered organ donors.”
