Lions Lazarus Program -What is the Lazarus Program and how do Massachusetts Lions Clubs support the organ donor program? The Lazarus Program is one of the Massachusetts Lions sponsored programs. Its purpose is to promote the need for organ donations. Monies raised are used to provide organ donor information to the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles by providing organ donor cards. In addition, during 2003-2004 The Lazarus Fund board of directors in conjunction with other agencies created a video highlighting organ donation and provided that video to all Drivers Education Training schools in Massachusetts.
