BC Transplant is helping organ transplant recipients, living donors, and donor family members thank the hospital staff for their work.

Operation Popcorn is an opportunity for those whose lives have been saved by organ donation to deliver festive packages of popcorn to staff in intensive care units, emergency departments and operating rooms (ICUs, EDs and ORs) across the province.

This week, more thanks will be given to hospitals across the island.

The thank you’s come to the North Island on Tuesday with a visit at the North Island Comox Valley Hospital at 8:30am, and the Campbell River Hospital at 11:30am.

The BC Transplant’s Operation Popcorn program has been running for over 28 years and so far this year 26 hospitals have been visited with over 100 packages being delivered to staff.
