There are currently more than 5.2 million people registered to become organ/tissue donors in Illinois. However, more than 300 people die each year waiting for an organ transplant and about 5,000 are on the waiting list.
The Secretary of State's Office will have a booth set up at the Carol Stream Library for patrons to register for organ and tissue donation. The booth will be open from 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
Illinoisans can also register to be a donor at LifeGoesOn.com, by calling the Secretary of State Organ/Tissue Donor Program at 800-210-2106, or by visiting their local Secretary of State facility.
