Parsippany is going green this April in support of National Donate Life Month

PARSIPPANY — Parsippany is going green this April in support of National Donate Life Month to bring awareness to organ and tissue donation.  One organ donor can save eight lives and one tissue donor can restore health to over 75 people.  Thirteen people in Parsippany are waiting for lifesaving organ transplants.

Nick Corrente, Desai Rushi, Jerry Corrente, Mayor Michael Soriano, Jessica Iannetta, John Iannetta and Matt Sonzogni. Front Row Connie Keller, Bob Keller and Beth Shaw.

Members of the Morris County Multi-Organ Transplant Group teamed up with Venture Crew 890, Boy Scout Troop 72 and NJ Sharing Network to tie green ribbons around town.  They started off at the main Branch of the Parsippany Public Library on Friday, April 6 along with Parsippany Mayor Michael Soriano.

The transplant group would like to thank all the participants, including the Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany, Key Clubs, Builders Clubs and K-Kids, for their support in promoting organ donation in Parsippany this month.

New Jersey Sharing Network is the non-profit organization responsible for the recovery and placement of donated organ and tissue for those in need of a life-saving transplant.

Members of the Morris County group have had kidney, heart, liver, lung, pancreas and tissue/bone transplants, are on the wait list, have donated and family.

The group regularly meets on the first Wednesday of the month in the Community Room in the Parsippany Police Station Complex.  New members are always welcome. Please call ahead in case of schedule changes.

The next meeting is Wednesday, May 2 and the program for the evening is a Roundtable Discussion on Heart Transplantation.
