Volunteer Appreciation Day at the Zoo Hosted by Butler County

Butler County celebrated the gift of life and the generosity of Kentucky's registered organ donors in partnership with the Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks' Trust For Life at the Lousiville Zoo on Saturday, July 24, 2021.  The Volunteer Appreciation event was two-fold - it raised awareness of organ, eye, and tissue donation while honoring the volunteers whose impact is vital growing the life-saving mission.  

Nearly 200 people from across the Commonwealth attended the Volunteer Appreciation Day and wore signature blue and green Donate Life colors.  By bringing together transplant recipients, donor families, patients waiting for a lifesaving transplant, and dedicated advocates, stories were shared, and new advocates were registered as donors.  Education efforts like these provide hope to the 1,000 Kentuckians who are waiting on a lifesaving transplant.

"As a community, we must embrace our role in saving lives through the Kentucky Organ Donor Registry.  Registering as a donor not only provides hope but celebrates and appreciated all that the journey of life has to offer.  Butler County's support is essential for our mission," said Melissa Cardwell, Butler County Circuit Court Clerk.

Since 1992, more than two million Kentuckians have joined the Kentucky Organ Donor Registry.  Those registrations are critical to save lives.  Join the Kentucky Organ Donor Registy in one of the following ways:
