The Friends of Patients at the NIH – September 2018

NIHFCU was a proud sponsor of the Friends of Patients at the NIH’s annual gala. Themed as a “Rocking Good Time,” the event celebrated another year of Friends’ financial support of patients and their families who are at the NIH for groundbreaking studies. RISE volunteers checked guests into the event so they could eat, mingle with their peers and patients, and dance to music performed by the NIH's own Affordable Rock’n’ Roll Act Band - a group comprised of NIH directors and scientist led by NIH Director, Dr. Francis Collins.

Mary’s Center – September 2018

Mary’s Center provides healthcare and wellness services in the DC Metro area to individuals whose needs often go unmet by the public and private systems. The NIHFCU was proud to participate in the center’s “Educational Baby Showers” classes, which help prepare expectant parents and their families for the arrival of their newborn. RISE volunteers created very special “baby packs” filled with many baby essentials that were raffled off during the session.

1Please note: As a not-for-profit institution, we are unable to approve all requests, and thus we will give the highest priority to organizations that directly serve the healthcare/biomedical industries in our local geographic area. The NIHFCU will not consider requests from the following entities: individuals, political, religious, labor or fraternal organizations causes, lobbying, etc.
