Lifeline of Ohio Supports National Pan-Hellenic Council Unity Week

On June 17, Lifeline of Ohio hosted our second NPHC Day of Service to kick off the National Pan-Hellenic Council of Columbus Unity Week.

This event gave over 100 community members and partners the chance to participate in our leaf ceremony; learn more about organ, eye and tissue donation through a Donation 101 presentation; and share individual connections to donation.

The highlight of the event was the service project activities. Our guests came together and completed 6 service projects that will directly impact the community we serve.

They assembled:

  • 501 6-Week Information Folders – for donor families
  • 211 Lasting Legacy Boxes – for donor families
  • 156 Rooted in Life Rack Card Bundles – for community outreach events
  • 155 BMV Pen Bundles – for our BMV partners
  • 88 Multicultural Brochure Packs – for community outreach events
  • 70 Hospital Visit Bags – for future recipients

Toward the end of the evening, several guests agreed to share their stories, took donation resources to provide to their church and added their loved one’s names to our donor memorial wall.

“This was an amazing event. Last year, I wasn’t ready to add my mom’s name to the wall when she became an eye donor, but I’m ready now. I’m looking forward to coming back next year!” commented Tamara Staley, President of the Columbus (OH) Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated.

Lifeline of Ohio continued its support for Unity Week by displaying and sharing information on our Rooted in Life campaign during their Leadership Awards Banquet, Uplift Her Women’s Wellness Day (hosted by the African American Male Wellness Agency), the Stroll and Step Competition and the Unity Cookout.

Thank you to the Lifeline of Ohio staff members who helped make these events and this week possible! We couldn’t have done it without you.
