Re: National Donate Life Month
League Executive Board Member, Mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs of Plainfield, our League Liaison to the NJ Sharing Network, has asked us to remind you that April is National Donate Life Month.
The purpose of the Network is to enhance awareness of the importance of organ and tissue donation. And the goal of National Donate Life Month is to focus attention on what we can all do to provide hope for the over 4,500 New Jerseyans currently awaiting vital transplants.
We are enclosing a Draft Proclamation, so that your municipality can participate in this important initiative.
We want to thank Mayor Robinson-Briggs for representing us so well with the NJ Sharing Network and for her compassionate leadership. And we want to encourage you to make your municipality a vibrant part of National Donate Life Month.
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
