Organ & tissue donors honored in Westfield

April marks the 14th annual National Donate Life Month

WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Westfield Mayor Brian Sullivan raised the Donate Life Flag in front of City Hall on Tuesday to commemorate those who have given the gift of life through donation.

The flag raising was also a call to action to join the Donor Registry. This April marks the 14th annual National Donate Life Month.

The celebration allows those whose lives have been saved or healed by a transplant to share their stories and encourage more people to register as donors.

Tissue donations alone help over a million people each year.
