Calendar

The increased risk in our area associated with coronavirus has greatly impacted our day-to-day lives. Our concern is first and foremost for the health and well-being of our community, volunteers, transplant recipients and donor families. If you are scheduled to volunteer or participate in any Gift of Life Donor Program events, please note that at this time we are suspending all in-person events and programs until further notice, with many programs taking place virtually as noted on our calendar. Please contact volunteers@donors1.org with any questions.

We understand and firmly support the need for heightened sensitivity and precautions related to infectious diseases. We join everyone in hoping that COVID-19 will soon be contained, and in wanting to do everything we can to support this. Our thoughts are with everyone who is facing or concerned about illness.

We encourage all to follow precautions and updates from these and other agencies:

Philadelphia Dept. of Public Health
Pennsylvania Dept. of Health
New Jersey Dept. of Health
Delaware Health Dept.
