CLEARWATER – Employees at the Pinellas County Tax Collector’s Office are teaming up with Donate Life Florida in March to make Floridians aware of the life-saving role they can play by registering as an organ, tissue and eye donor.

Tax Collector employees are participating in the annual Donate Life Challenge to promote awareness of Florida’s organ donor registry.

“I am honored that my offices can be part of an effort like this that helps save lives” said Pinellas County Tax Collector Diane Nelson. “We have been involved in the organ donor effort since we began issuing driver licenses in 2001.”

Tax Collector employees help register potential organ donors by asking all driver license customers if they would like to join the registry. Last year’s Donate Life Challenge led to more than 85,000 new donor registrations throughout Florida.

"Organ transplantation let me walk both my daughters down the aisle in 2012,” said double lung recipient Pete Schwob. “I will forever be in their wedding pictures and know that they are in good hands with their great husbands – all because someone said “yes” to organ donation!"

More than 3,700 Floridians currently await organ transplants, and more than 120,000 patients are on the nationwide list. Every 10 minutes another name is added to the national organ transplant waiting list.

Register as an organ donor:

1. On Donate Life Florida’s website at www.DonateLifeFlorida.org

2. When renewing your driver license online at www.GoRenew.com

3. When obtaining a new or renewed driver license in an office

4. By calling Donate Life Florida at 1-877-35-SHARE (1-877-357-4273)

Donate Life is a non-profit 501(C)3 organization contracted by the state of Florida, Agency for Health Care Administration to create the state’s organ, tissue and eye donor registry.
