The $20,000 grant awarded to SODA will be used to provide its student leaders with mentorship, event grants, supplies, written guides, and more to successfully educate their peers about organ and tissue donation and register them as organ and tissue donors.
Under Sara's leadership, SODA’s student leaders have educated over 12,000 people about organ and tissue donation and registered over 1,300 as organ donors, reducing the organ shortage.
Congratulations, Sara! 🎉 It's well-deserved.
