Message from Mayor Armstead

April is Donate Life Month

The City of Linden in Partnership with the NJ Sharing Network Celebrates Donate Life Month

Over 100,000 people in the United States are currently awaiting organ donation. Of those, four thousand live in New Jersey, twenty of whom live in the City of Linden. On average, twenty people in the United States die each day waiting for an organ that is not donated.

One person’s organ and tissue donation can save up to eight lives, and enhance over seventy-five lives. Please watch the video below for more information, and for how you can take an active role in organ donation.
