Donate Life Month is celebrated every April and is a time to bring awareness to the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation as well as donor registration. As a community, you have a unique opportunity to join the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office in helping those in need.
In honor of April’s National Donate Life Month, the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office and several first responder agencies throughout the state have partnered with Nevada Donor Network to host a press conference announcing the “Silver State Heroes” campaign. This press conference will take place Monday, April 3 at 2 p.m. at the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office.
• Kidneys are the most needed organ.
Nevada Donor Network is a 501c3 not-for-profit organ procurement organization also responsible for facilitating tissue and cornea donation statewide. They coordinate, recover and allocate lifesaving organs and healing tissues for transplantation and research on behalf of the heroic donors and courageous families. They provide education to hospital staff and community partners about donation and provide a strong network of support for the courageous donor families who save and heal lives through donation.
Thank you for taking the time to read this message of the week. These types of events are important to the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office, and the community. The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office is working hard to solidify a true partnership with our community and the people we serve.
