2019 Pennsylvania Community Health Center Challenge

Pennsylvania Association of Community Health Centers has partnered with the Pennsylvania Department of Healththe Center for Organ Recovery & Education and Gift of Life Donor Program — the two organ procurement organizations serving Pennsylvania, to support the 2019 Pennsylvania Community Health Center Challenge.

The Challenge encourages Pennsylvania community health centers to increase organ donation awareness and designations within their health center and community.

The awareness and designation activities are captured on a scorecard for participating health centers to achieve platinum, gold, silver and bronze level point totals. PACHC encourages Pennsylvania community health centers to participate in the 2019 Challenge. Interested organizations may register at any time. The challenge will run from March 29 to September 13, 2019.

More than 8,000 Pennsylvanians await organ transplants, and thousands of others await tissue transplants. Nationally, close to 115,000 men, women and children are waiting for a life-saving organ transplant.

Twenty-one of them die each day because an appropriate match was not found in time. One organ, tissue and eye donor may save up to eight lives and help more than 75 people.

Questions about the campaign should be directed to 1-877-DONOR-PA (1-877-366-6772).
