New Community Report Illustrates the Power of Donation

October marks Lifeline of Ohio’s 30th anniversary, and to help illustrate the power of organ, eye and tissue donation, Lifeline of Ohio released a new community report.

With the mission-focused print piece in hand, we interviewed Lifeline of Ohio CEO Kent Holloway on what the document’s purpose is and how the organization plans to use it.

Q: Why do you think it is valuable for Lifeline of Ohio to share its vision, mission, volunteer stories, etc. with the public through this print piece? 

A: One way to succeed in our work is to openly share our vision, mission and stories.  We rely on the essential partnerships in our community to understand the service we provide and the difference it makes in the lives of so many.  By sharing our vision, mission and stories through this resource, we can more strongly align with those we serve.

On the cover of the resource, young heart recipient Avrie Nelms is held by mom Melissa Nelms, a moment that wouldn’t have been possible without Avrie’s organ donor. Learn more about Avrie’s story here.
