Mayor Domenic J. Sarno was visited today by Matt Boger of New England Donor Services who presented the Mayor and the City with a Donate Life citation of recognition for continuing to support life-saving organ and tissue donation.
Mayor Sarno states, “I am proud to be an organ donor and I know so many here in Springfield are, too. Thank you to Matt Boger, New England Donor Services, and Donate Life America for all you do to save and heal lives through organ and tissue donation.
Many of our lives have been touched by organ and tissue donation, and because of the selflessness of those who have registered as organ and tissue donors, thousands of lives are saved each year here in Massachusetts. I encourage all to learn more about and consider this option which can be the ultimate gift for someone in need. Registering and getting that heart symbol on your ID is a simple process, but it can truly change lives – and not just for the recipient but for entire families and communities.”
