Trick-or-Treat for Pediatric Patients at Georgetown Hospital

Thursday, October 31, 2013

MedStar Georgetown University Hospital

Our volunteers went to Georgetown University Hospital to help with their giant, hospital-wide trick-or-treating event. Our volunteers took patients, who otherwise wouldn't have been able to easily participate in Georgetown Hospital's trick-or-treating event, down to the main hall and wheeled them through the treat line, enabling these children to have a phenomenal Halloween, despite their current mobility issues. We were also able to use GIN funds to provide additional candy, as well as crayons and Halloween and Autumn coloring books. The Child Life office at Georgetown will use these supplies to do "reverse trick-or-treating" for patients who weren't able to leave their rooms, even with our assistance.

Children's Inn Caribbean Night

Friday, July 26, 2013

Children's Inn at The National Institutes of Health (NIH)

The Inn was awarded a $250 Get Involved Now grant to sponsor one of their meals. Fortunately for us, Ms. Liebert from St. Kitts and Nevis hosted dinner last Friday, and we had the opportunity to help cook, serve and enjoy a tasty Caribbean meal with the Inn's children and families. On the menu: chicken, rice, banana pancakes, fruit and signature drinks (kid-friendly pina coladas, strawberry daiquiris, and ginger beer) with flamingo straws. The Inn also arranged for a DJ to play some Caribbean rhythms and accompany the kids dancing and hula hooping, including the rare feat of two little girls who were somehow tandem hula hooping. The night drew to a close with a surprise birthday cake for an incredible mom living with her family at the Inn.
