Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness
April 19, 2011, 12:15 PM EST
April 17-23 is National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week and the CAW is recognizing the week by encouraging all members to sign their donor registration card and urge family and friends to do the same.
Phil Goodwin, CAW Local 222 member and workplace trainer, co-ordinates the Trillium Gift of Life initiatives on behalf of the union and said that CAW members can make a world of difference in the lives of others by signing their donor registration card. He stressed that it's equally crucial to make one's wishes known to your family so that they know you want the donation to take place.
The Trillium Gift of Life Network will have a table set up at CAW Council in Port Elgin, Ontario from April 29-30.
