Proclamation: Donate Life Month
The Department of Health has been actively engaged in the promotion of voluntary donation for many years, and the enactment of Act 102 in 1994 has increased Pennsylvania's efforts to inform and encourage Pennsylvanians to become donors. As the lead agency in state government, the Department of Health is responsible for the coordination of organ and tissue donation initiatives and reporting to the general assembly about donation progress. Residents of Pennsylvania who have a driver's license or state I.D. card have the ability to go online to a secure page within PennDOT's website to add the donor designation to their record. Pennsylvanians no longer will have to wait until they renew their driver's license or state I.D. card to say YES to donation.
To become a donor:
1. Sign up to be an organ donor online.
2. Check "yes" for organ and tissue donation when you get or renew your driver's license, learner's permit or photo ID.
