Register As An Organ and Tissue Donor Today and Save Lives
A registration to join Michigan’s organ and tissue donor list will be held on Tuesday, October 8, 10:00 AM-8:30 PM. Library staff will be available to answer questions, provide fun give-away items and, most importantly, help community members become organ, eye, and tissue donors. If you are not able to stop by during the scheduled times of sign up and you would still like to become a donor, you can register online at www.GiftofLifeMichigan.org.
The Canton Public Library has partnered with Michigan’s organ and tissue donation program, Gift of Life, to host a Michigan Libraries for Life campaign. The organization recovers over 900 organs each year, from 300 or more donors, saving hundreds of lives and improving thousands of lives of seriously injured and sick recipients through the recovery of bones, skin and other tissue. By hosting this campaign, we hope to educate, inspire, and empower our patrons to join Michigan’s organ and tissue donor registry and help save the lives of one or several of the 3,000 Michigan residents currently waiting for an organ transplant.
