Credit Union Raises Funds for NIH Charities

Several people hold up a large check made out to NIH Charities

At check presentation are (from l) Randy Schools; Cassandra Hairston, NIHFCU; Heidi Grolig, Friends of Patients at the NIH; Steven Levin, NIHFCU; Jennie Lucca, CEO, Children’s Inn at NIH; Roger Bordine, representing Special Love; Rick Wieczorek, NIHFCU president & CEO. Seated is Zilly, inn therapy dog.

By donating $25 for every auto loan its members originated with them in October-December 2016, the NIH Federal Credit Union recently provided $8,500 to the NIH Charities. 

The donation will be split evenly among the Children’s Inn at NIH, Friends of Patients at the NIH and Special Love. Funds will go directly to helping each organization fulfill its goal of supporting patients and families struggling with the life-altering impact of significant illness and treatments. 

“The NIHFCU is thrilled to give back to the NIH community which, since 1940, has provided us with the privilege of serving their dedicated workforce,” said Steven Levin, NIHFCU’s vice president of marketing & business development. “Whether our donation helps to send young cancer patients to summer camp, delivers some financial relief for distressed families at the NIH for long-term stays, or contributes to providing a safe haven for ill children in between their NIH treatments and hospitalization, the NIHFCU is honored to support the incredible missions of these three fine organizations.”

“The NIHFCU is an integral part of the NIH community and the NIH Charities cannot thank them enough for their generosity,” said Randy Schools, NIH Charities founding board member and trustee. “This gift, along with the other financial and in-kind support the credit union has provided throughout the years, has truly made a difference in the lives of thousands of patients and families who are faced with extreme medical circumstances.”
