Michael Vasaturo serves as vice president and CFO of New Haven Terminal in New Haven, Connecticut. As part of his ongoing efforts to benefit his community, Mike Vasaturo supports several worthy charities including Donate Life America.

Donate Life America saves thousands of lives through efforts to secure organ, eye, and tissue donations. The nonprofit organization creates awareness of the importance of donating these life-giving gifts and works with state teams and national partners to motivate the U.S. public to help.

There are currently more than 120,000 individuals in the United States waiting for organ transplants. Someone is added to that list every 10 minutes, and 22 of those people die every day because they lack access to the tissue and organs they need to live.

Donate Life America knows that every one of these patients is depending on others to donate, whether while living or posthumously. By educating the public and furthering awareness, the organization hopes to encourage all Americans to become donors.
