BMVs Awarded for Work on Donation’s Front Lines
Several Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) Deputy Registrar Locations were recognized in April for their hard and steadfast work on the front lines of donation.
In the month of April, Lifeline of Ohio awarded a total of seven 2012 “Organ, Tissue and Eye Donation Front Line Awards” to BMV locations in its service area. Lifeline of Ohio coordinated the award presentations on behalf of Donate Life Ohio, representing all of the organ, tissue and eye recovery agencies in the state of Ohio. Agency winners either had the highest organ, eye and tissue donation registration rates in their BMV District or the greatest improvement in their BMV District of people saying “yes” to organ, eye and tissue donation.
“On behalf of the Donate Life Ohio Council, we are honored to recognize these Deputy Registrars for their outstanding efforts on the front lines of saving and enhancing lives,” said Lauren Fitting, Lifeline of Ohio community outreach and partnership coordinator. “All of our deputy registrar agencies are an integral part of our mission. We are very pleased to recognize these seven agencies in particular for their dedication and hard work.”
These awards are as much a commendation of the generosity and compassion of the citizens of the community as they are to the outstanding commitment of the BMV Deputy Registrar locations that serve them.
The award presentations coincided with National Donate Life Month, providing Lifeline of Ohio with an opportunity to raise awareness about organ and tissue donation and the lives saved by donors.
