To all Vital Alliance members, partners, associates, Donor Family Members,
recipients, and friends.
I am sad to relay to you that as of 19 July 2013 Vital Alliance has officially dissolved as a corporation.
It was with much deliberation, soul searching and negotiation that the Board
of Directors faced our reality and made the difficult decision to close down
Our decision was based on declining membership, the duplication of effort by
other local organizations and the fact that new legislation facilitating
Organ, Eye, and Tissue Donation Registration has allowed state agencies to
more efficiently and effectively accomplish that task.
I want to thank everyone who has either participated in or helped to plan
one of our many annual and one-of-a-kind events over the past 27 years!!
It was only with your support that Vital Alliance was so successful!
The fact that Vital Alliance is going away does not, in any way, mean that
the need for volunteers is any less than it was yesterday!
For those of you who would still like to step up to the cause,
please contact the Texas Organ Sharing Alliance – Friends for Life Program!
The annual Memorial Tree Planting and the Donate Life Run-Walk will continue, with planning and execution falling to the various Donor and Transplant agencies throughout the city.
Or contact one of the agencies below for volunteer opportunities:
The Texas Organ Sharing Alliance (Local OPO) (866) 685- 0277
South Texas Blood & Tissue Center (210) 731- 5555
San Antonio Eye Bank (210) 614- 1209
Transplants for Children (210) 949- 1212
Once again, Thanks to all of you for your support!
Live your life…then, Donate Life!!!
