Donor Remembrance Ceremony set for March 9

On Jan. 1, Penn State Hershey sponsored a rose on the "Rose Parade Donate Life America” float for each organ and tissue donor who gave the gift of life at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center between July 1, 2012, and June 30, 2013.

At 1 p.m. Sunday, March 9, Penn State Hershey faculty and staff involved in the care of organ and tissue donors are encouraged to join families of each donor for the Rose Parade Donor Remembrance Ceremony, held in the University Conference Center.

Donor families will receive a live rose symbolizing their loved one’s gift. Employees will have an opportunity to catch up with these families either before or after the event. A light reception will follow the ceremony.
