TRIO Philadelphia social events . . .

At least once a year our chapter tries to host an OPEN/FREE social event (not of course in today's COVID-19 days of social distancing, but in prior years).  These have taken the form of luncheons at a Chinese family restaurant (Media, PA), a huge family dinner affair at Schneider's German style family restaurant (Johann, our host, is a heart transplant recipient  - recently his shore-famous restaurant burnt to the ground and has not been rebuilt - a big loss!), a BBQ picnic at Kathy's home (with pool for the kids - Kathy is a double-lung recipient with twins whose life story and twins created the TRIO Philadelphia "Mommy Can Play Again" - and those are just some of our social events that you too can be apart of if you join our chapter.

Maybe next event you can join us?


TRIO: Transplant Recipients International Organization, Inc.

TRIO Philadelphia was chartered on June 4, 1997, as a member of the TRIO national network of local support chapters by our co-founder and first president, Elizabeth Rubin, and a group of dedicated and passionate transplant recipients, living donors and their caregiver family supporters.  Our chapter has a long history of active engagement both in the TRIO national board and many local like-minded organizations such as the regional OPO (organ procurement organization), the Gift of Life Donor Program.
