If you are looking for a way to help local Shriners Hospital patients, we can always put your dollars to work.


                   The Zembo Transportation Fund was established to help provide transportation assistance to our local children who are patients of the Shriners Hospitals for Children.  This program is run by the Nobles of Zembo Shrine, in the "Shepherds Unit", who volunteer their time and energy to making certain that patients who would otherwise be unable to travel to the hospital are able to get to their appointments. The travel expenses associated with this volunteer service are paid for through the generous contributions made to this fund.  These donations are assisting local families every day by allowing them access to the care that their child needs at our Shriners Hospitals for Children. Donations are accepted year round and are tax deductible.  Zembo Shrine's jurisdiction covers patients who reside in the following counties: Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Hershey, Lebanon, Juniata, Perry and York.  Lancaster County is a shared jurisdiction.  Zembo represents the western half of Lancaster County, while Rajah Shrine represents the eastern half of Lancaster County. 

           If you would like to help support our patient transportation program, donations can be made payable to the ZEMBO TRANSPORTATION FUNDand can be forwarded to:  Zembo Shrine Business Office at 2801 North 3rd Street, Harrisburg, PA 17110.  Contributions are TAX DEDUCTIBLE.  Just click on the link below to print out a donor form.

Why we're here... Read stories about our patients.

What is Shriners Hospitals for Children?

Shriners Hospitals for Children® is an international health care system of 22 hospitals dedicated to providing pediatric specialty care, innovative research and outstanding teaching programs. Children up to age 18 with orthopaedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate are eligible for care and receive all services in a family–centered environment, regardless of the patients’ ability to pay. Shriners Hospitals for Children - Philadelphia is a 59 -bed hospital specializing in providing pediatric specialty care to kids with orthopaedic conditions and spinal cord injuries. Local children from the Central PA area travel to Shriners Hospital in Philadelphia every day for this specialized expert medical care. Patients who are 18 years and younger are considered based on medical need only; nationality, insurance status, relation to a Shriner, nor a family's ability to pay are factors in admission to our programs.
