National Hispanic Heritage Month
September 15 – October 15
National Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the culture and traditions of US residents with Hispanic roots. The term Hispanic or Latino refers to Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race. This month is an opportunity to celebrate and honor the gifts of life made by Hispanics through organ, eye and tissue donation and to encourage Hispanics to commit to donation. Have you made a decision to be an organ and tissue donor? Have your recorded and shared that decision? No? Consider recording your decision today and sharing that information with loved ones. If you want to host an education and awareness event and/or a registry drive in your community, please call.
