A local funeral home joined the effort to promote organ donation this month.
Davis Funeral Home in Nutter Fort held a flag raising to encourage people to sign up as a donor.
The organization works with the Center for Organ Recovery and Education to build up the number of people who decide to donate their organs.
“Nationally, there’s over 123,000 people waiting for an organ transplant, and sadly 21 people die every day because of the shortage of it,” said T.J. Roser, CORE.
CORE also works with hospitals and other organizations around the state.
