October is National Liver Awareness Month and this is extremely timely here at Lower Macungie Library this year. You all know Greg and Jen as friendly faces at our Circulation Desk. On November 2nd, Greg will be donating part of his liver to Jen. Jen has been suffering with a malfunctioning liver for many years, and this year has been especially difficult for her. When Greg found out he was a perfect match, he generously and selflessly became her donor.
On Saturday, October 28, we will have a bake sale to benefit Jen and Greg. The bake sale will be held during the Library’s 2nd “A Taste of Soup” from noon to 2PM at the Library, 3450 Brookside Road, Macungie. Proceeds from A Taste of Soup will support Library programs and services. Local restaurants, individuals will compete for the “Best Soup” in several challenges. Tickets are $10 for adults and $1 for children 11 and under. Tickets will be available at the door. A GoFundMe account has also been set up for their expenses at https://www.gofundme.com/liver-fund-to-support-jen-greg
We are all so excited for Jen and Greg and encourage you to learn more about Organ Donation and the wonders it does!
