The Gift of Life Donor Program is honoring living organ donors throughout our region.

More than 14 pairs of donors and their recipients were guests of honor at the Sheraton Hershey Harrisburg hotel in Dauphin County.

This is the third year this event has taken place.

Organizers say living donations are becoming more common and this event is a great way to give back to those who give up a part of themselves to give the gift of life to someone else.

Over 5,100 people in our region are currently waiting to find a living donor.
