Honoring the Oregon DMV
In January, Donate Life Northwest kicked off a three-month-long tour of a Threads of Life Quilt to DMV field offices around the state. The tour highlights the 40-year life-saving partnership with the Oregon DMV.
The Quilt has already completed 2-week stops in Sherwood, Pendleton, Baker City, and Bend and is currently on display in the DMV office in Medford. It will soon move on to Corvallis, before finally moving to Salem for a special ceremony where the Quilt will be formally retired for permanent display at the DMV headquarters.
At many stops, members of the Donate Life community whose lives have been touched by donation are visiting the DMV to show gratitude for the DMV’s efforts by sharing their personal stories with staff.

Unveiling the 2015 Threads of Life Quilt
The 2015 Threads of Life quilt is dedicated to the memory of those who gave the gift of life or have otherwise been touched by donation. Constructed from articles of clothing, blankets, cherished jewelry and heirlooms; each square is unique and tells the story of incredible courage, faith, and generosity. We invite you to join us as we come together with all members of our donation community to unveil the 2015 ‘Threads of Life’ quilt, to celebrate the gifts of life, sight and mobility, and honor those who make this gift possible. This year’s unveilings will take place in Eugene on Saturday, April 11th and in Portland on Saturday, April 25th. To find out more about the events and to RSVP, please click HERE.

The Tabor Trot is family-friendly and open to people of all physical activity levels. The course has two options: a 2-mile long walk to summit and back, or a shorter walk around the reservoir without a summit climb. We want to make sure that everyone has a chance to participate. There will be prizes, goodie bags, snacks, costume contests, and fun for all. We can’t wait to see you there!
