The Jacksonville Transplant Alliance is a community of individuals and transplant-related organizations in the Northeast Florida area who are dedicated to providing donor education through social media, community events, and educational forums.
Our goal is to increase the number of registered donors and to help recipients, their families, donor family members, and others within our community become greater ambassadors of organ and tissue donation so that together, we may save lives and shorten the waiting time for those awaiting transplant.
Happy Holidays from JTA! 2020 was a difficult year for all of us as COVID-19 continued to keep us separated not just from each other, but from our normal lives. We look forward to a better, healthier, and more social 2021!
Due to the ongoing health risk, JTA reluctantly canceled our annual Gift of Life Celebration, typically held in mid-October. But as the days, weeks, and months ahead continue to unfold, we hope that the success of a safe COVID vaccine will allow us to once again join in celebration next fall. In anticipation of that, the JTA Board Members have chosen the date of Saturday, October 23rd for next year's event. The Tribute to Life donor recognition ceremony will be held the evening before.
Tribute to Life - Friday, October 22, 2021
Gift of Life Celebration - Saturday, October 23, 2021
Both events will be at Christ Episcopal Church in Ponte Vedra Beach.
There will be much more information to come as the spring and summer months approach. Watch your email for details and of course, we will keep our Facebook page updated.
Please stay safe and stay well throughout the holidays. The entire JTA board wishes all of you and your families a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy new year.
Our Facebook group is active, full of good information, and is the quickest and easiest way to get updates on our events and the latest transplant news. We are a private group so you must ask to join. Click below to join us!
