We work with a number of community groups to raise awareness for organ and tissue donation throughout the region. Volunteers attend these events on CDT's behalf and help to educate the communities we serve. CDT provides all materials and giveaways.
CDT offers education programs to provide students and educators information about organ and tissue donation. High schools and colleges are encouraged to share information on organ and tissue donation with their students. CDT can assist educators by providing materials, giveaways, and speakers for events. Volunteers are needed to secure and attend these events in the community.
Each year CDT holds signature events that we need volunteers for. Some of these events include our Donor Memorial Brunch, Tree of Life Events and The Donate Life Legacy Walk. There is a wide variety of volunteer options to choose from, there is definitely something for everyone!
CDT offers every organ donor family a beautiful hand made blanket. The blankets are made by volunteers, carefully adorned with a "Donate Life" patch and then presented to the donor family at the hospital by a CDT staff member. The blankets are for the families to keep and find a small bit of warmth and comfort in. We supply all the materials needed to make a blanket and rely on volunteers to make these no-sew blankets for our donor families.
