Donor Alliance Awards Westminster Driver License Office for Saving & Healing Lives

Registration as an organ and tissue donor is a crucial component to Donor Alliance’s mission of saving and healing lives in the region. In Colorado, nearly all organ and tissue donor registrations come through driver license offices. To recognize this important step in the donation process, today, Donor Alliance presented its 2023 DMV Appreciation Award to the Westminster Driver License Office. Each year, Donor Alliance honors a Colorado driver license office or employee from each region for going above and beyond to inspire customers to give the gift of life as well as embodying the power of donation in their office culture.

The Westminster Driver License Office exemplifies a passion to promote the power of registering as an organ and tissue donor. Several of its employees have been touched by donation with friends or family receiving the gift of life through transplants. Their personal experience helped Westminster employees understand the importance of inspiring DMV customers to check the box. Saying “yes” gave their loved ones a second chance at life to experience weddings, graduations, and to meet their grandchildren.

“Donor Alliance is incredibly grateful to our DMV partners. They play a significant role in the donation process, providing hope to the nearly 1,500 people waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant in our region,” said Jennifer Prinz, President, and CEO of Donor Alliance. “Each time a driver license customer is asked the question, it’s an opportunity for another life to be saved and healed.”

Transplants rely on the generosity of organ and tissue donors, and it starts with saying “yes” at the DMV. One person can save up to eight lives through organ donation and save and heal up to 75 lives through tissue donation.

“Each member of our driver license team understands the profound importance of this question,” said Electra Bustle, DMV Senior Director. “At the core of our DMV mission lies a commitment to public safety and life preservation and our driver license team exemplifies that passion to help others every day. We deeply appreciate the impactful collaboration with Donor Alliance, which contributes to saving and healing thousands of lives annually.”

Last year, 278 donors in the region saved more than 700 lives through organ donation and nearly 2,000 tissue donors were able to save and heal more than 143,000 people. Not only can people register to be an organ, eye, and tissue donor when getting a driver license or state ID, they can also register anytime at
