FAB&T partners with Arkansas Regional Organ Recovery Agency (ARORA) to help save lives!
March 2016: FAB&T is pleased to join with the Arkansas Regional Organ Recovery Agency (ARORA) to help save lives. The Workplace Partnership for Life unites ARORA with FAB&T to encourage bank employees to register as organ, tissue and eye donors. ARORA's mission is to recover life-saving and life-enhancing organs and tissue for transplantation. In making the announcement, FAB&T Chairman, President and CEO, Larry T. Wilson stated, "We are pleased to announce this partnership with ARORA to encourage our team mates and associates to learn about, and register, for organ donation. This is a big deal because there are people every day who are in desperate need of organ transplants, and, every day there are people who would be capable of meeting those needs, but have not yet registered to be a donor. Our hope is that the FAB&T family will rise up to see the value of organ, tissue and eye donation, and will consider giving a new life (or new quality of life) to someone in need."
Currently, there are nearly 130,000 Americans on a waiting list for a vital organ, and another person is added to that list every 16 minutes. Sadly, about 21 patients will die each day while waiting for an organ.
