York hospital dedicates organ donor quilts

YORK, Pa. (WHTM) – Wellspan York Hospital is honoring the spirit of organ donations with a special story-telling donation.

In conjunction with the Gift of Life donor program, the hospital dedicated two special quilts from the families of organ donors. The unique quilts are made up of individual squares from families that tell the life stories of the donors.

On hand at this week’s ceremony were family members of the 16 organ and tissue donors on the quilt along with local residents who received lifesaving transplanted organs.
