Naperville Teen Tackles Organ Donation for Eagle Scout Project

Recently, an ambitious teen by the name of Kevin Haga tackled a lifesaving project to help register Illinois residents as organ/tissue donors as his final project for becoming an Eagle Scout. Working in conjunction with Donate Life Illinois volunteers, Kevin coordinated a donor registration drive for Naperville’s Last Fling parade.

Check out some photos from the Parade as well as this article commending Kevin’s efforts in the Naperville Sun.

In addition, Kevin put together this video below to supplement his call to action. Hopefully Kevin’s efforts inspire other teens to help tackle similar projects to spread the word on donation.

Thanks Kevin!
