TAH is once again participating in the statewide donate life hospital challenge during the month of April.  The challenge is an initiative to raise awareness and provide education regarding organ, eye and tissue donation to employees as well as the public.   The Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania (HAP) and Center for Organ Recovery and Education (CORE) are the organizations leading this initiative.

To encourage engagement about this important topic TAH is pleased to announce Blue and Green Spirit week.   Please see the details below, all events are open to the public.

Monday April 8 from 9am-11am – Kickoff event in Coffee Days—Please come give a hand(print) to kick off the week.  Specialty Blue Green Drink available this week in Coffee Days, located in the hospital lobby.  Get a free Donate Life pin or bracelet with your purchase of the specialty Blue and Green drink.

Tuesday April 9 from 12pm-1pm* – Lunchtime Walk at Roberts Grove Park—To promote the donate life message we invite you to join the walk as we remember those who have given and received.  Please register for the walk by visiting https://tinyurl.com/tahwalk *In the case of unfavorable weather the walk will be cancelled.

Wednesday April 10, starting at 11am – Blue and Green Treats — Stop in the cafeteria and get a sweet treat!  We will be giving away cookies (while they last) and organ donation information.

Thursday April 11 from 10am-2pm- Create Donate Life Rocks—Paint a rock with a Donate Life message in the cafeteria.

Friday April 12, Flag Raising and National Blue and Green Day—Please wear Blue and Green Today and attend the Donate Life Flag raising at 1:00 PM in front of the hospital (in the case of rain we will meet inside the main lobby).

Individuals are encouraged to talk with family members and friends about registering as a donor.  One organ donor can save up to eight lives and a tissue donor can improve the lives of more than 100 others.  Anyone has the potential to be an organ donor, regardless of age, race or medical history.  Although 90 percent of Americans say they support organ and tissue donation, only 30 percent know the essential steps to take to become a donor.  All major religions in the United States support organ, tissue and cornea donation, and see it as the final act of love and generosity toward others.  There are two options for those who make the decision to save the lives of others by donating organs:

  • Register at the Driver’s License Center when receiving or renewing a state- issued license or ID.
  • Visit core.org/register and enter the necessary registration information online. It only takes about a minute.
