Kena Shrine Shepherds Club
The Kena Shepherds is the heart of Kena Shriners, charged with transporting patients to and from Shriners Hospital for Children in Philadelphia and arranging for air transportation to and from burn centers in Shriners Hospitals in Boston, Cincinnati and Montreal on either commercial flights or special medical equipped private flights.
The Kena Shepherds maintain a fleet of vans and have access to one which is wheelchair accessible. The volunteer drivers make approximately 100 trips per year to the Philadelphia Hospital. Providing this transportation and maintaining a fleet of vans are costly. Please consider making a donation to Kena Shiners; Donate Now!
The current Shepherd membership consists of 18 active and 1 associate volunteer drivers who gladly offer their free time to safely transport patients and parents.
MISSION STATEMENT: Kena Shepherd’s will coordinate screening of children referred as potential patients for Shriners Hospitals. We will provide safe, reliable and timely transportation where both the patient and guardian feel safe and cared for while in transit to such hospitals where specialized medical care will be provided to improve the lives of these children.
The Kena Shepherds meet once per year or at the request of the President.
