For nearly 25 years, LifeBanc has transformed death into life.

Hundreds of thousands of Ohioans are alive today because of LifeBanc. Along with serving the public, professional community and donor hospitals, LifeBanc provides life-saving organs to two transplant centers: The Cleveland Clinic and University Hospital Case Medical Center. Recovered tissue is transplanted countless times in hospitals throughout the region.

LifeBanc's volunteers and staff annually educate nearly 100,000 students and adults in an effort to provide accurate information, engage the public and increase the number of registered organ and tissue donors. We also provide bereavement services to families touched by donation, offering them support, comfort and care throughout the grieving process.

The B.R.I.C.K. program provides community services through a variety of activities, projects, and events.  The young men meet weekly to discuss important school issues, update projects they are working on, and contribute ideas and thoughts on new and productive ways to get involved within the community.  At times, there are speakers who come to the school to address the young men on a variety of issues.  B.R.I.C.K. youth are required to volunteer during the year at day care centers reading to small children, senior citizen centers and other non-profit community agencies.  They are expected to improve their grades during their involvement in the program, and they are given t-shirts to identify them as school leaders and mentors.

We look forward to seeing you there.  Please share information about this exciting program with family, friends, neighbors, associates, co-workers and others.  In fact, BRING SOMEONE that could use assistance in their career goals!
