A tag day is being held tomorrow to support National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week. Local Coordinator Nora Fontaine says they want people to seriously think about organ and tissue donation. She explains their theme this year is sign up for life and register your intent to become an organ donor. She says they’re hoping that more people will register online at www.signupforlife.ca where they’ll be linked to the data bank and more provinces are joining forces and they hope that all of Canada will be in a central registry making it easier for families at a most sensitive time when a loved one is on life support.
Fontaine says they’ll be holding a tag day tomorrow from 10 to 4 on Main Street, the Gateway and Canadian Tire as well as from 6 to 8 at Triple Seven. They will have cards to show how to register online and if you have any questions Nora will be at the Community Hall lobby from 10 to 4.
