By Linda Green

The McDuffie County Commission proclaimed April as “Donate Life” month.
The county commission approved a proclamation April 2, honoring all residents who decided to donate eyes, organs and tissues as well as signed up through the Georgia’s Donor Registry at www.donatelifegeorgia.org.
In reading the proclamation, Chairman Charlie Newton said 10,178 McDuffie County citizens have registered to give the gift of life. He said donating organs and eyes are the ultimate act of generosity that McDuffie citizens can perform.
Aaron Cobb, transplant coordinator for LifeLink of Georgia, accepted the proclamation.
“On behalf of LifeLink of Georgia, I want to thank you guys for honoring us. We continue to try to save lives,” Cobb said.
