National DMV Appreciation Week was created by Donate Life America in 2016 to thank DMVs and recognize them for their commitment to the Donate Life mission. National DMV Appreciation Week is a time for the Donate Life Community to say thank you and show its appreciation of DMV partners across the country through national and local events and outreach.
It recognizes DMVs as vital partners in saving and healing lives. DMV staff ask the donor registration question to customers every day.
Partnerships with DMVs remain the primary source of state donor registrations. DMV staff are the people on the front lines of service who have helped more than 150 million people across the country to register their decisions to be deceased organ, eye and tissue donors.
“We are honored to partner with the Virginia DMV to register organ, eye and tissue donors and are grateful for all that they do to save lives every day,” said Lara Malbon, Donate Life Virginia program coordinator.
