The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), along with the Governor’s Organ Donation Advisory Committee and their partners, have recognized the Top 12 performing local license offices for their efforts to register individuals and collect contributions to support the Donor Registry System and education efforts.

The Pacific license office was recognized in several categories.

“Every day the license office clerks show their commitment to saving and enhancing lives by asking every patron if they want to be an organ, eye and tissue donor,” said Dr. Randall Williams, DHSS director. “We encourage everyone to be an organ donor and let your family know of your decision to give the gift of life.”

Local license offices are responsible for over 97 percent of the 3.8 million registered Missouri organ donors.
