National Donor Sabbath in November

November 15, 2013toNovember 17, 2013

National Donor Sabbath 2013 is a nationwide annual observance November 15-17. All major religions encourage life-saving organ donation as one of the noblest human actions.

Clergy participation is particularly important because people look to their faith leaders for guidance on serious decisions in their lives.

Faith leaders of all religious denominations, along with other community leaders, can help to spread the facts about organ donation and increase organ donation sign-up by participating in National Donor Sabbath.

There is no cost to participate.

Want to participate? Please contact Amy James, FLDRN Community Education Manager, at 585-683-3174. Or email Amy James.
