The Living Legacy Foundation of Maryland Partners with Baltimore City Councilman

July 2018 –This past July, as part of The Decision Project initiative, The Living Legacy Foundation of Maryland and Councilman Leon Pinkett of the 7th District in Baltimore City, partnered to bring a fun-filled day to the Sandtown community. Close to 300 residents attended, along with 25 vendors and Mayor Catherine Pugh. The day included health screenings, career assistance, Zumba, food, and activities for kids. Each child went home with a backpack and school supplies to kick off the school year.

About the Decision Project

The Decision Project is all about empowering people to make an educated and inspired decision about organ, eye, and tissue donation and then share that decision with their family. With a targeted focus on areas of Maryland with low designation rates, this campaign will take a grassroots approach and work directly with community and neighborhood organizations to:

  • Educate about the need for organ donors in the African American community.
  • Enhance trust of the organ, eye, and tissue donation process.
  • Share our message and dispel the many myths and misconceptions about donation.
  • Additionally, this campaign seeks to increase our outreach and public engagement efforts to support the communities we serve.
