Alabama Organ Center to honor memory of organ donors

The center will host its annual "Service of Rememberance" on Feb. 24.

The Alabama Organ Center (AOC) will hold its annual “Service of Remembrance” at 3 p.m. Feb. 24, 2013, in the UAB Hill University Center Alumni Auditorium. The nondenominational service honors donors who gave the gift of life during the previous calendar year.

Each donor family is asked to bring a photo or memento of their loved one to be displayed during the service, as well as write a tribute to their loved one to be read aloud as presentations are made. Families also may bring a quilt square to be incorporated into the Alabama Donor Family Quilt that travels with AOC speakers to promote organ donation. For information on attending or to RSVP, contact Donor Family Liaison Carrie Peter at 800-252-3677.
