April is National Donate Life Month and is a time when people are encouraged to register as organ, eye and tissue donors. Those who have saved lives through the gift of donation are also celebrated this month. The New Milford Police Department is helping to raise awareness by displaying a Donate Life Flag in front of the Police Department along with wearing Donate Life Pins on our uniforms during the month of April. A single organ donor may save up to eight people and a single tissue donor may enhance the lives of up to 50 people. More than 118,000 people currently are waiting for an organ transplant. Thousands more are in need of tissue and corneal transplants.
