Chapter activities/projects

TRIO members volunteer in many roles supporting guests at the Transplant Family House

Trio Philadelphia is a hub of creative activity with a focus on at least one big event/project each year.  Recent and current projects are listed below, linked to full page detailed descriptions for each.  Click on each underlined title to see that event’s details.

  • “Mommy Can Play Again”-a book written for the children of a family that is facing a transplant in their family.  Based on a member’s real-life double lung transplant story, the book was illustrated by children of member transplant families.  Limited hard copy supply is still available free; on-line copies can be viewed on-line or downloaded to your home computer printer.
