CR Volunteers, Hillary and Michael: Turning Passion
With the success of last years Have A Conversation Save a Life, CR members Hillary Wehry and Michael Jobling were motivated to coordinate the 2nd annual organ donation awareness week. With the participation of Washington, West Florida, Pine Forrest and Pensacola High Schools CR members will reach over 4,500 students about the importance of organ donation and having the conversation with their parents. Each day of the week is assigned a different theme to generate awareness with the CR public service announcement broadcasting daily throughout the week and banners and signs posted throughout the school. The week will kick off Monday, November 17th with CR members wearing their red shirts, Tuesday students will be involved in mass texting the message, Wednesday green donate life bracelets will be passed out and worn, Thursday organ donation pamphlets will be distributed with organ donor cards and Friday CR members will wear the new organ donation shirts in honor of William, generously provided by Kim McMahon.
