Last Year’s Celebration

Lifesharing Night

Every year, we honor our organ and tissue donor heroes on Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).    This year’s event will be held at the Sherman Heights Community Center on Saturday, October 26, 2019 from 10am – 4pm.    The Day of the Dead is a celebration of life where we remember our lost loved ones.   Lifesharing employees create a traditional ofrenda where we display the photos of some of our recent donors.   Ofrenda means “offering” in Spanish — it’s similar in appearance to an altar.   Our ofrenda is a beautiful sight to behold, with seven layers encased in a decorative iron arch adorned with marigolds.  Lifesharing employees decorate traditional sugar skulls which are displayed next to the photos of the organ and tissue donors.

Please follow Lifesharing on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter at @LifesharingSD for updated information on the location of the ofrenda and other event details. Lifesharing is the federally designated group that coordinates organ and tissue donation in San Diego and Imperial Counties.
