Project: Family House baking

Gift of Life Family House for families while dealing with organ transplant here in the city of Philadelphia

Another new project for our chapter has been going beyond the volunteering support  of the OPO’s new Transplant Family House in which several members participate.  TRIO Philadelphia members now also serve as teams of bakers for the Gift of Life Family House guests. 

We would welcome you joining us as a TRIO Philadelphia member to come help make this “hotel like” residence feel more like home for visiting families with home cooked meals and tasty baked goods.

Shown below from our 2014 event (from left to right) are TRIO members  Susan Pincus, Faith Carlin, Jim Gleason, Sue & Bob Kelchner and Elizabeth Rubin serving up several baked desserts after one of our Saturday morning meetings.

This is now a regular planned quarterly activity of the chapter, so stay tuned to our monthly meeting agendas for an opportunity to come and have a fun time with this very fulfilling family support event.  The most recent baking event was in May of 2015:
