National Donate Life Month Proclamation

April is National Donate Life Month, and at the Tuesday, April 11 meeting of the Wellington Village Council, the village issued a proclamation recognizing the importance of organ donation. Community activist Maureen Budjinski, a longtime advocate of organ donation, addressed the council on the importance of this critical issue. More than 104,057 Americans and 5,343 Floridians are currently on the national transplant waiting list. Budjinski asked everyone to sign up as an organ donor.
