April is National Donate Life Month. It is a month designated that honors organ, eye, and tissue donors. To help support and bring attention to Donate Life Month, Fulton County Health Center will sponsor a Green Chair event on Tuesday, April 8 beginning at 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM to help spread awareness to this life saving cause. When someone is seated in the chair, it symbolically represents the hope and second chance at life that comes from donation. When the chair is empty, it represents the loss of someone who had died waiting for a transplant. The Green Chair will be primarily located in our main lobby during the day but may travel to some FCHC departments from time to time, so be in the look out for it.
Also on April 8th at 11:00 AM, we will also hold a flag raising ceremony during the Green Chair event. During the ceremony, a Donate Life flag will be raised at FCHC at our main entrance and will fly for the entire month of April to honor and celebrate the donors and recipients whose lives have been affected by organ, eye, and tissue donation. The public is invited to the event.
