Donate A Life Flag Raising Awareness Ceremony
24 April 2019
The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited by Pittsburgh Cremation and Funeral Care to stand in silent honor and raise the American Flag and the Donate Life Flag, raising awareness for CORE and the importance of organ donation.
The Center for Organ Recovery & Education (CORE) is one of 58 federally designated not-for-profit organ procurement organizations (OPOs) in the United States. CORE works closely with donor families and designated healthcare professionals to deliver the gift of hope by coordinating the surgical recovery of organs, tissues and corneas for transplantation. CORE also facilitates the computerized matching of donated organs, tissues and corneas.
CORE honors its donors and donor families. They are the heart of this organization and the foundation of the mission. Without them, transplantation would not be possible. They are respectful of the gift of life and give tribute to its power through community outreach and education.
CORE has respect for both death and life. They provide hope when life is lost, all the while maintaining the dignity of our donors.
