Activity Report

    January 2021

    Hello and happy 2021!

    My name is Rose Cabral and I am honored to be your next San Francisco Bay Area chapter President. I have been attending TRIO meetings since I was 10 years old. My mom had acute kidney failure and the doctors said her only option was a kidney transplant. She was anxious and worried and didn't know anything about organ donation. She found TRIO and through the kindness and support of the members and monthly meetings she received her transplant in 1995.

    Over the past 26 years, I have volunteered at health fairs, donor life celebrations, 5k run/walks, and numerous other events across Northern California. Each year I also look forward to our truly special TRIO picnic and holiday dinner. I am grateful for our thoughtful caring members, whether you have been with us for decades or are brand new.

    Please save the date for our next chapter meeting: Thursday, February 11th at 7PM.

    My goal for the first meeting of 2021 is to hear from all of you. I am interested to know what brought you to TRIO, why you continue to show up to TRIO meetings, and what you would like to see in 2021. Even if it's been a while since you joined us, I would love to welcome you back!

    This year we are hoping to return to our monthly meeting schedule, virtually of course. We are also working on scheduling speakers on a variety of topics, including COVID, so we can all learn and have our questions answered.

    Please feel free to reach out to me by phone, email or text with ideas, questions, or simply to say hi. I look forward to seeing you all on the 11th.

    -- Rose
