“I became a volunteer and now advocate for all aspects of transplantation. I am so grateful for the extended family I have with NJ Sharing Network."
- Dorothea Duffy
NJ Sharing Network Certified Volunteers help us spread the message of organ and tissue donation, and play a crucial role in educating our community.
Our volunteers power our life-saving mission
Our volunteers have a personal connection with organ and tissue donation or strongly support our mission. Volunteer support enables us to better serve patients and their families, strengthen community relations, and continue to provide educational outreach programs to the Tri-state area.
Volunteer training - Advocacy Night
To ensure you are knowledgeable and comfortable with your role as one of our advocates, specific training is available monthly for our various programs. Ongoing updates and new materials are also provided regularly.
Learn more about organ and tissue donation, connect with other members of the donation and transplantation community, become a Certified Volunteer and learn how you can participate in our community programs by attending an upcoming Advocacy Night! Visit our Events page for upcoming meeting dates.
Donate Life Regional Groups
Our Donate Life Regional Groups are taskforces created throughout the state, gathering local representatives to take action and educate their communities about organ and tissue donation. We partner with local businesses, government agencies, houses of worship, high schools, colleges, first responders, hospitals and other organizations with the enthusiasm to save lives through grassroots efforts.
