Join the Michigan Organ Donor Registry to save lives during our second Michigan Libraries for Life campaign on Tuesday, October 7th from 2:00-8:00 PM. Library staff will be available to answer questions, provide fun give-away items and most importantly, help community members to become organ, eye and tissue donors. If you are unable to stop by during the scheduled time and are interested in becoming a donor, register online.
The Canton Public Library has partnered with the Gift of Life Michigan in this endeavor. By hosting this campaign, we hope to educate, inspire and empower patrons to join Michigan's organ and donor registry and help save the lives of one or several of the 3,000 Michigan residents currently waiting for an organ transplant.
In the meantime, register to be an organ donor at ExpressSOS.com, the online Secretary of State, here at the library. In so doing, it offers hope to the more than 3,200 Michigan residents currently waiting for the gift of life.
