In celebration of National Donate Life Month, all are invited to attend the 2018 OTS Tree Planting Ceremony honoring organ and tissue donors, their families, as well as recipients, friends and caregivers.  

The ceremony will start in the Meeting House at Naper Settlement, 523 South Webster Street in beautiful Naperville, Illinois.   We will have speakers about organ and tissue donation as well as the personal story of donation from a donor family.   Following the ceremony, we will go outside where everyone is invited to participate in the ceremonial tree planting of this year’s tree.  Following the tree planting everyone is invited to enjoy light refreshments and friendship back in the Meeting House.  

The OTS Tree Planting Ceremony & Dedication is a very special way that all transplant recipients can honor our organ donors for the gift of life.   If you have any questions or need additional information, please call the OTS office at 630-527-8640.  Mark your calendars NOW to attend the OTS Dedication on Sunday, April 29, 2018!  

It is our desire that this living tree will stand as a reminder to everyone of the lives that these donors have saved through their most generous and precious gift.
