Cleco donates $15,000 to Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency

LOPA employees Jill Willie, director of strategic marketing; Chrissy Hagan, chief administrative officer; Kyle Hagan, chief operating officer; and Kelly Ranum, chief executive officer, received a $15,000 from Cleco employees Scott Biggers; manager of origination and retail retention; and David Hursey, principal governmental services representative.

Cleco donated $15,000 to Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency (LOPA) to support their core purpose of “Making Life Happen” through organ and tissue donation. LOPA, established in 1988, is a nonprofit organ and tissue recovery agency.

It is federally designated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid as the organ procurement organization for Louisiana, responsible for housing and maintaining the state’s donor registry.

“Cleco’s donation will help fund LOPA’s life-saving work and their efforts to continue growing Louisiana’s organ and tissue donor registry,” said Scott Biggers, Cleco manager of origination and retail retention. “We’re happy to have support from Cleco,” said Kelly Ranum, CEO of LOPA.

“Our Donor Care Center is one of only 10 in the nation and gives us the ability to uniquely serve our community and maximize the gifts from our organ and tissue donors.”
