The Got the Dot Club is designed to educate Kern County students about the need and importance of being an organ donor when you apply for your first driver license or identification card. Many students are unaware of what being a donor means and how they can greatly help their communities by checking “Yes” to donation when applying. Providing information to students during the program prior to going to the DMV allows them to make an educated decision.
