An Update From Gift of Life
Gift of Life is moving through this unknown time, as we continue to develop our programs and find our new normal. The success of our fundraising campaign GIVE TO LIVE was humbling to say the least. We exceeded our fundraising goal of $90,000 and we are in a strong financial position as the uncertainty of the pandemic still looms above all of our heads.
Transplant Mentors continues to experience growth, as nationally more transplant hospitals begin to refer their patients to us for support. The Life Savers Educators are developing a Life Savers Menu of Learning, so teachers can select tools from our tool box that meet their educational needs. Life Savers will be a combination of classroom and virtual presentations and may include our online program Learn Life Savers. In the fall an effort to present to School Boards in the state of Missouri begins, in hopes that eventually Learn Life Savers will be embraced by districts across the state.
We have received a facelift to our existing office space which includes an additional office. This provides social distancing, safety and more privacy for employees. We look forward to the time when you can visit and see our new digs.
The staff is working remotely from their homes combined with limited office hours. We are always available by phone or email. We appreciate those of you who have checked up on us….we are safe and healthy and we hope you are too.
Stay safe, stay healthy & stay positive,
