Peoria County Coroner to be honored with Gift of Hope award

PEORIA - Peoria County Coroner Jamie Harwood was selected as a Lifesaving Partner by Gift of Hope Organ & Tissue Donor Network. 

A ceremony for Harwood's contributions is set for Oct. 12 at the Hyatt Lodge at McDonald's Campus in Oak Brook, Illinois. The Lifesaving Partners Award honors those who have gone above and beyond to make donations possible.

"My staff and I work very hard to facilitate organ and tissue donation, and the semantics is tedious and time consuming," Harwood said. "Yet, as a priority and commitment to the residents of Peoria County and the surrounding counties, this recognition demonstrates our dedication to your loved one’s last wishes with donation. I could not be more proud of our staff for their hard work and commitment to organ and tissue donation!" 

Gift of Hope's mission is to save and enhance the lives of as many people as possible through organ and tissue donation.
