Sign Up, Donate a Kidney: Marion Barry

Drive commemorates former mayor's own kidney transplant


Washington, D.C. Councilmember Marion Barry is coming out today and this time it's not in regards to any controversy.

The former mayor is sponsoring a kidney drive Saturday at Howard University to commemorate the one-year anniversary of his own kidney transplant.

Barry is asking everyone to come out and sign up to be a donor, find out their blood type, or just learn more about becoming an organ donor.

The drive begins at 10 a.m. and runs through 5 p.m. at Howard University Hospital at 2014 Georgia Avenue NW.
