Organ Donor Enrollment Day 10/10/19

Every 18 hours, a New Yorker dies waiting for an organ transplant. A contributing factor to this statistic is that there are simply not enough residents registered as organ donors.

Only 35% of New Yorkers are registered as organ donors compared to 58% nationally.

Organ Donor Enrollment Day aims to change that by sending hundreds of volunteers out into the community to urge their neighbors to make their support for organ donation known and register to save a life.
