The Trucking Association of New York is proud to partner with Donate Life New York State (NYS), a nonprofit whose mission is to increase organ, eye, and tissue donation in New York State through collaborative advocacy, education, promotion, and research. Their goal is to ensure a transplant for every New Yorker in need, and TANY members can help!
Right now in New York State, more than 9,000 men, women and children are waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant. One individual can save up to eight lives as an organ donor, and can improve the health of up to 75 people as an eye and tissue donor. Increasing enrollment in the New York State Donate Life Registry (Registry) will improve donation rates in New York; raising awareness is the key to success.
The majority of Americans support organ and tissue donation, yet only 40% of New Yorkers have registered as donors. As the workforce that keeps New York moving every single day, TANY members are in a unique position to increase visibility for the Donate Life mission. Let’s keep LIFE moving forward!
