ZEMBO TRANSPORTATION FUND
Donations that are to go to the Shepherd’s Patient Transportation Program: Checks should be made payable to “Zembo Transportation Fund” Donations to this fund ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
The Zembo Shrine 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 who volunteer their time and energy to making certain that patients who would be otherwise unable to travel to the hospital are able to get to their appointments. 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. Donations can be made payable to the ZEMBO TRANSPORTATION FUND and can be forwarded to: Zembo Shrine Business Office at 2801 North 3rd Street, Harrisburg, PA 17110. Contributions are TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
