The volunteer program
Throughout the year, BC Transplant attends community events, organ donor drives, races, walks, church groups, schools and workplaces across the province to raise awareness and register organ donors.
We have volunteer opportunities during National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week (NOTDAW), our annual Operation Popcorn campaign and Transplant Heroes Week deliveries to transplant wards and clinics.
We also have a strong Speaker Program through which transplant recipients, living donors and donor families share their stories to help raise awareness for organ donation.
Our volunteers are champions in their communities, organizing registration drives and raising awareness. BC Transplant provides mini-Campaign Kits, ensuring volunteers have supplies and support to help make a successful event.
Through our volunteer program, we aim to:
- Increase the number of British Columbians who have registered their decision about organ donation
- Create conversations, raise awareness, and support for organ donation and transplant across the province
