About Us

The Donate Life Group of Orange County is a group of volunteers who work in the community on behalf of LiveOnNY (formerly the New York Organ Donor Network).  With the ultimate goal of saving and improving lives, we strive to raise awareness for donation and transplantation, educate the public, and encourage residents to enroll in the New York State Donate Life Registry.

 

Our volunteers are comprised of donor families, donor recipients, living donors, medical professionals, and friends and family of those who have been affected by organ donation.

 

Our monthly meetings feature educational presentations by government officials, medical professionals, and organ donor organizations.  Anyone is welcome to attend.

Our efforts to enroll donors on New York State's registry are focused on face to face educational outreach at community events such as:

  • naturalization ceremonies
  • blood drives
  • wellness fairs
  • athletic events
  • DMV registration drives
  • community fairs

Many of our volunteers are willing to speak in public about their personal experiences with organ donation.  If your organization needs a speaker, please contact us
