April 7th - Gift of Life Fundraiser

On April 7th I was invited to the Staaten to be a part of a fundraiser for the Gift of Life Transport vehicle. The Gift of Life Family Transport was established to honor the memory of Amanda Forsyth whose organs were donated after a fatal car accident in 2006. Her family was helped through the ordeal by transportation service to and from the hospital which is provided by the city Fire Department to its members. The family decided to extend that service to all families of organ donors. Initial fundraisers went toward the purchase of a 2009 Chevy Suburban. This year's proceeds will go toward the vehicle's maintenance, gas, tolls and insurance. Driving is done by volunteers from the city Police and Fire departments. It was great to be able to help such an important organization.
