SALT LAKE CITY — Over 20 people donated for organ transplants in May, according to Donor Connect, which operates the “Yes” Utah organ donation campaign, setting a record for donors in a single month.

The previous record was 16 people and 71 organs were recovered from the record-21 donors last month.

Those organs were transplanted into 71 individuals, who were waiting for lifesaving operations.
