February 14 isn’t just Valentine’s Day. The day is also National Donor Day.

Local organizations JJ’s Legacy and One Legacy partnered to educate Kern County on the importance of donation.

Less than 31 percent of Kern County residents are registered as organ or tissue donors.

More information can be found on California’s donor registry website.
