Joining with counties from across the state, the Livingston County Board of Supervisors has proclaimed April as Donate Life Month to promote and increase organ and tissue donations throughout the County.
The Livingston County Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is teaming up with Donate Life NYS in observance of National Donate Life Month (NDLM), celebrating the lifesaving impact made by organ, eye, and tissue donors. Donate Life NYS is the statewide nonprofit organization whose mission is to increase organ, eye and tissue donation in New York State through collaborative advocacy, education, research, and promotion. The theme of 2022’s Donate Life Month, “Bee a Donor,” was inspired by the vital role bees play in sustaining life.
“The Livingston County DMV is proud to provide visitors with the opportunity to ‘bee’ a donor by enrolling in the New York State Donate Life Registry when conducting a license, permit, or non-driver ID transaction,” said Livingston County Clerk Andrea Bailey. “During the entire month of April, our office will be raising awareness of the critical need for organ, eye and tissue donation in New York State.”
