OALM Makes Gift to Children’s Inn

Frasier presents a large check to the inn

On hand for the check presentation are OALM employees (from l) George Martinez, Sharmaine Fagan-Kerr, Keivon Avents, Colby Dawson, Melissa McKerrow, Patricia Kirby, Diane Frasier, Karen Thomas and Children’s Inn staff Anna Tate and Julie Herman.

During a recent visit to the Children’s Inn at NIH, Diane Frasier, director of the Office of Acquisition and Logistics Management, presented the inn with a check for $400 from raffle proceeds at a recent OALM function.  

Earlier this year, Jennie Lucca, CEO of the inn, spoke at the annual OALM employee awards ceremony. Her talk identified the many ways the inn offers support to the families of children participating in clinical trials, treatment and research at the Clinical Center. Several tours were set up for OALM employees to see the inn and learn of its activities, including the work being done to make children and their families comfortable and provide them with a home away from home. The experience reminded OALM staff of the importance of their contributions to the NIH mission, including helping youngsters aided by the inn.
