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.

Gift of Life Donation Champion Learning Session will be held through ZOOM WEBINAR
Nov 5 @ 8:30 am – 12:30 pm

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, we remain committed to meeting your educational needs.  In keeping with the social distancing requirements, we’ve decided to hold our November 5th, 2020 Donation Champion Learning Session via Zoom Webinar.

Gift of Life Donor Program has developed a half-day learning session to train and equip healthcare providers who are interested in improving their hospital’s organ donation systems. This half-day workshop is a fast-paced and highly interactive session. Participants are asked to assess their unit’s/hospital’s current donation processes and are charged with “Leaving in Action” so that a collaborative and coordinated effort is in place for offering families the opportunity for donation. CLICK HERE to register for the November 5th session.
