3,000 vouchers must be sold by October to make the Florida Donate Life license plates a reality. Please order yours today. The cost is just $32.50 if ordered online.
Getting a voucher for the new Donate Life license plate just got easier! The Donate Life Florida license plate will become a reality after Donate Life Florida presells 3,000 vouchers for the plate. You can purchase a voucher online through the St. Lucie County tax collector’s office. You don't have to live St. Lucie county to purchase the voucher online.
Vouchers can also be purchased at any tax collector's office in person. Many offices are taking customers via appointment only, so please check with the offices in your county for the rules: www.FLHSMV.gov/locations.

National Nurses Week, traditionally celebrated from May 6 to May 12 each year, is now a month-long celebration to expand opportunities to elevate and celebrate nursing. The month-long celebration is a time “to recognize the vast contributions and positive impact of America’s 4 million registered nurses,” according to the American Nurses Association, which first declared May 6-May 12 National Nurses Week back in 1993.
ANA selected the evergreen theme, Nurses Make a Difference to honor the varying roles of nurses and their positive impact on our lives. Nurses make a difference as trusted advocates who ensure individuals, families, and populations receive quality patient care and services. Nurses make a difference by influencing and shaping health policy decisions that ensure all Americans have access to high-quality, affordable health care coverage.
The Jacksonville Transplant Alliance board of directors is happy to announce our newest board members!
We warmly welcome each of our new board members and look forward to working with them in the coming years. Thank you to all our volunteer board members for their dedication and service to JTA, to the organizations they work for, and to the transplant patients, living donors, and donor families in the Northeast Florida area.
Signing up on your state registry means that someday you could save up tp 8 lives as an organ donor by giving the Gift of Life. When you register, most states let you choose what organs and tissues you want to donate, and you can update your status at any time.
Florida residents, you can register online to be an organ, eye, and tissue donor at www.DonateLifeFlorida.org.
If you're a U.S. resident outside Florida, you can locate your state's donor registry at OrganDonor.gov.
At any time, you can change your registration. Whether it's your contact information or your choice of organs or tissue to donate, Donate Life America offers a convenient way to edit your registration.
